Estate: Passionate about winemaking, Prosper Maufoux founded the Burgundian estate in 1860. Located in the village of Santenay, in the heart of the southern Côte d’Or, the estate has a long history of crafting high quality, terroir driven wines. Today the company is headed by Eric Piffaut, whose family’s winemaking roots in Burgundy go back to 1898. Winemaker Nadine Gublin is at the helm, receiving many accolades, including being named the first female “Winemaker of the Year” by France’s leading wine magazine, La Revue du Vin de France.
Winemaking: Grapes are from vineyards with predominately chalk and clay soil, located in the Côte d’Or near the city of Beaune. Aged in lightly toasted barrels [10% new oak].
Tasting Notes: Transparent ruby red in colour with aromas of cherry, strawberry, raspberry and soft spice. Morello cherry, cranberry, red currant, violets and dusty earth are framed by silky tannins and fresh acidity. Red berries and traces of baking spice linger on the dry finish. Polished and delectable, fantastic on its own or with a wide variety of dishes.
