2015 Lupe Cholet Couteaux Bourguignons
Over a century ago, in Nuits Saint Georges, Alexandre de Mayol de Lupe and Felix de Cholet decided to join their wineries to create Domaine Lupe Cholet. Their motto was "To bring together the best of soil, vine and human skill to produce wines of unique personality."
This merger meant they would own vines in Chablis as well as various locations in the Cote d?Or. Until a few years ago, it remained a family business. With no decendents remaining, the property was sold to Albert Bichot who has upgraded the facilities and added to the landholdings.
David, the Grape Wrangler, walks past the winery that sits at the entrance to the village of Nuits Saint Georges on every visit to the patissiere. Having visited to barrel taste last year, he became even more enamored with the wines.
This interesting wine is a blend of Pinot Noir and Gamay and it works. Aromas of rose petals, ripe fruit, cherry and currant. The palate shows cherry, raspberry and licorice. The balanced structure is supported by lightly toasted tannins.
Pinot Noir, Gamay
