Wine region: Burgundy - France
Grape: 100% pinot Noir.
Tasting notes: The nose is gourmand, elegant and quite aromatic. It reveals notes of coffee, plum and crushed black berries combined with hints of cherry, raspberry, as well as discreet touches of tonka bean, spices and an imperceptible hint of Sichuan pepper. The palate is fruity, mineral, juicy, well-balanced, well-built, harmonious and offers a nice fat, a beautiful definition, elegance, a small freshness, a good guideline, a slight juiciness, volume as well as straightness, tension and gourmandise. On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry, juicy Quetsche plum, juicy raspberry and slight touches of cherry, cassis associated with discreet touches of mocha, sweet spices, wood as well as a very discreet hint of coffee and black tea (in the background). Tannins are fine and very slightly chewy. Good length.
About the Winery: The Muzard domain belongs to a very old Santenoise family where they have been wine growers from father to son for nine generations (Jacques Muzard in 1645). Mr and Mme Lucien Muzard structured the vineyard in the1960s first of all by renting the vineyards, then gradually buying them.
Claude and Herve Muzard now work the 16 hectares of the family domain, distributed over various 'climats' with Santenay, Chassagne Montrachet and Pommard. The overall production of the domain is 5% white wine.
The business has preserved traditional methods (manual harvest, stalks removed from grapes and matured in vats) continuing to improve the quality thanks to new techniques
(harvesting in 20 kg crates, sorting table, temperature control during wine-making,,,). All the wines are matured in oak casks with a distribution, according to vintages, of 30 to 40% of new casks.
