This recently introduced appellation allows for the blending of Burgundy’s two red varietals - Pinot Noir and Gamay - and showcases all of the freshness found in northern France’s vineyards. The grapes come from selected plots located throughout Burgundy.
SoilThough the terroirs are very diverse, all of the soils are a mix of clay and limestone. The vines are planted in a north-south axis with varying exposure to the sun and at varying altitudes. These factors all contribute to this wine’s aromatic complexity.
