France - Burgundy
What We Say
A fruity nose with hints of berries and spices, followed by powerful aromas of morello cherry, blackcurrant and pepper.
What They Say
Ruby red color with garnet highlights. Strawberry, soft herb and slight red grapefruit nose. Medium to full bodied on the palate with classic pinot noir fruit. Mouth watering and well integrated acid palate and soft, supple tannins on the pleasantly lingering finish.
About The Producer Domaine les Cretes
Located in the heart of the Alps, nestled among the “four giants” – Mont Blanc, the Matterhorn (Cervin), Monte Rosa (Mont Rose), and the Gran Paradiso – lies the Aosta Valley, the smallest of the Italian regions. This area is ideal for the vineyards as they stretch along the central valley and rise near the mountains. Made up of 33 hectares lies the Domaine des Crêtes, they produce wines that are indulgent, fresh, and elegant. The Estate’s reputation extends far beyond the Aosta Valley, and some of their cuvées are sought after by sommeliers all over the world.
