The Wine
Bourgogne Rouge Côte Chalonnaise, La Digoine is grown on the lower, south-facing, slopes in Bouzeron; this is one of the world’s most stylish Pinot Noirs from humble origins.

Decanter 93/100 : “The 1.8ha plot for this wine is located at the foot of the slope in Bouzeron. Grapes from mature vines are fermented (two-thirds as whole clusters) and aged over two winters, to give this lovely, expressive red berry fruit an undercurrent of mineral, smoke and savoury notes. On the palate it has the extract, freshness and tannin to age for years. A marvellous wine.”

About the Wine Maker

When Aubert de Villaine came to Burgundy to take charge of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti in 1971, he set up home in the village of Bouzeron and began to put together a private domaine independent of DRC. Initially, all the vineyards were added in the 1990s. The domaine began conversion to organic farming in 1986, becoming certified in 1997. Aubert de Villaine handed over management to his nephew Pierre de Benoist in 2000. Pierre de Benoist is passionate about rediscovering the identity of the Côte Chalonnaise.
