Domaine Rene LeClerc Bourgogne Rouge 2017 Sustainable
A very prestigious name in Gevrey Chambertin! Domaine René Leclerc is a family farm of 24 acres since 1962 succeeding René Bernollin. Their philosophy is to make wines with the same passion for different terroirs that are not technical. René and his son, François emphasize the fruit component by pressing the grape (old 1952 press) for only 3 hours to avoid bitter tannins and utilize used barrels only. Too much oak, Rene says, dries out a wine and makes it less pleasurable. For the Leclerc family, this is art, not simply a scientific recipe. These are traditional wines of uncompromising quality. Today, they are one of the best known and most highly respected craftsmen in Burgundy
100% Pinot Noir. Ripe red berry fruits, hints of wood charters from previously used barrels from the Domaine's other appellations. Nicely integrated tannins give this wine its backbone and transition into a silky finish. Also, notes of licorice for some added personality. Being unfined and unfiltered only adds to this expression of Pinot Noir. Give this wine about an hour to open up and you'll be rewarded immensely.
