Domaine de Villaine
Is a winery in Bouzeron, in Burgundy. Their vineyards are found mostly on slopes located at an altitude of between 270 and 350 meters above sea level, in poor soils with a high limestone content. It has cultivated its vineyards certified organically since 1997, and in order to make great wines it seeks to ensure that the grapes ripen optimally and are in perfect conditions of health.

The vineyard for Domaine de Villaine Bourgogne Côte Chalonnaise The Digoine is a small plot of 1.8 hectares of vines that are 35 to 45 years old. It is planted in the typical soils found in Burgundy - clay and limestone. The harvest is carried out manually so that the grapes arrive in the cellar at their best.

After a thorough selection of the best bunches, to produce Domaine de Villaine Bourgogne Côte Chalonnaise La Digoine about 2/3 of these are vatted whole in wooden tanks. They ferment with native yeasts, and the must-wine remains in contact with the skins for about 10-12 days. It is then de-vatted and pressed, and lastly the wine is aged for 10 to 12 months in wooden tanks, depending on the potential of the vintage.

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.
