The Cornu family have been growing grapes in the Cote de Beaune since 1875 but it was not until 1959 that they began bottling wines under their own label. With a focus on purity and traditional winemaking the family gives us wines that radiate their birthplace and speak with Burgundian sensuality. Al the Pinot Noir for this wine come from a single vineyard near Chorey-les-Beaune, which is why you get some of that telltale smokiness that Chorey often shows. Black cherry and roasted coffee on the nose, along with hints of reduced teriyaki over mushrooms. Silky in the mouth with plenty of energy and racy acidity to balance out the ripe fruit. The wine continues to evolve in the glass offering little whisper of floral notes and more cherry. Easy to love.
