Domaine Sylvain Dussort, Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2017
Meursault owes its reputation to its prestigious white wines. The area does, however, produce a little red wine due to its proximity with the neighboring village of Volnay, known for its reds. These vines, with an average age over 30 years, are located on slopes at the places known as Les Durots and Lameroses. Another plot used for this cuvée, Les Clous Perrons, grows on silty soil over gravel. Harvesting is by hand, with 100% destalking.
The wine is quite smooth with moderate tannins and aromas of red berries. It should be drunk at between 2 and 5 years.
