Domaine Truchetet Cote d’Or Rouge 2020


A nose with notes of red fruits and redcurrants, with hints of spice and leather. The palate boasts remarkable length, depth and elegance, a beautifully harmonious expression of classic timeless Burgundian Pinot Noir. A supple and special wine that expresses its terroir.

A 100% Pinot Noir cuvée from old vines farmed organically and planted on three parcels in the commune of Comblanchien, at the bottom of the slope and just below it, on a vein of very soft white limestone soils. There is natural grassing between the vines and the grapes are harvested by hand.
The grapes are destemmed, followed by two weeks of maceration, gentle pressing, and transfer by gravity into barrels (25% new oak) for 12 months of maturation then an additional five months in vats. Bottled by gravity at the Estate.

More Information

Domaine Truchetet, a very special small Domaine in the heart of Nuits Saint Georges, it has been family owned and run for 6 generations. Jean-Pierre Truchetet has been handing the baton over to children Morgan and Julie for some time and in 2018 he took full retirement, leaving the next generation in charge.
Soil comes first and they are now “officially” moving towards organic farming. They continue to explore new practices, such as innovative plant and seaweed treatments. Their objective: to give energy back to their soil while bottling the fullest expression of each terroir. In the attempt to avoid too much oak influence in their wines, the Truchetets use an unusual barrel called a Harlequin which combines alternative staves of oak and acacia and does indeed have a harlequin look about it. The acacia allows oxygen ingress without adding brute wood notes, effectively halving the oak influence on the wine. To further mitigate the new wood effect, they undergo a very light toasting for a maximum of two hours.
Domaine Truchetet produce small quantities of pure, delicious and thoughtful wine.
