Country: France, Burgundy
Grape Varieties:
Pinot Noir
Tasting Notes: The violet colour of this Burgundy and its lovely black fruit notes (cherry, black currant) give us a grat density on the palate and an aromatic complexity. The toasted oak from aging is present anf there`s beautiful finesse to the tannins. It is fairly tense and well stuctured wine. 

Food Pairing: Chicken and Turkey

After 11 years spent in Vosne – Romanee, working at a beautiful domaine in the Cote De Nuits (Domaine Anne Gros), Elodie decided to take over the family vineyards located in the appellation of Maranges (southern end of the Cote d’Or). At 38, she decided to return to the lands of her childhood. She resumed the management of her family’s vineyards planted by her grandfather and father.

Desire: The desire for something else, to work for oneself, the desire to create her own vineyard!!
She created her own Domaine Elodie Roy, comprising of the 10 hectares of different appellation.

Philosophy: To respect the vine as much is possible, to follow the vegetative cycle. She wants to move to sustainable viticulture, more respectful of the soil and the environment. She practices natural grassing on all her vines. The work in the vineyard is for her the basis of everything, it is essential for the quality of the grapes and therefore essential for her wines.

With all her experience, her passion for her terroirs and wines of Burgundy, she made her first vintage in 2018. She is looking forward to an exciting future!

The Grape
Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir is probably the most frustrating, and at times infuriating, wine grape in the world. However when it is successful, it can produce some of the most sublime wines known to man. This thin-skinned grape which grows in small, tight bunches performs well on well-drained, deepish limestone based subsoils as are found on Burgundy`s Côte d`Or.

Pinot Noir is more susceptible than other varieties to over cropping - concentration and varietal character disappear rapidly if yields are excessive and yields as little as 25hl/ha are the norm for some climates of the Côte d`Or.

Because of the thinness of the skins, Pinot Noir wines are lighter in colour, body and tannins. However the best wines have grip, complexity and an intensity of fruit seldom found in wine from other grapes. Young Pinot Noir can smell almost sweet, redolent with freshly crushed raspberries, cherries and redcurrants. When mature, the best wines develop a sensuous, silky mouth feel with the fruit flavours deepening and gamey "sous-bois" nuances emerging.

The best examples are still found in Burgundy, although Pinot Noir`s key role in Champagne should not be forgotten. It is grown throughout the world with notable success in the Carneros and Russian River Valley districts of California, and the Martinborough and Central Otago regions of New Zealand.
