Impossible to miss, the small jewel of Domaine Jessiaume sits at the entrance to the tiny spa town of Santenay. Built in 1850, it comprises over 37 acres, with large plots in Santenay, important holdings in the Premiers Crus Auxey Duresses Les Ecusseaux and Volnay Les Brouillards and a terrific section of Beaune les Cent Vignes vineyard. Domaine Jessiaume always create wines with elegance and finesse.
This wine spends 12 months in French oak barrels and 3 months in stainless tank before bottling.
The wine has a ruby red, clear colour, with a bouquet of red fruit (cherry and rasberry). The fruit then continues on the palate and leads to a nice supple finish. This Bourgogne Pinot Noir has the capacity to age for around 4 to 6 years.
It goes particularly well with rotisserie chicken, grilled meats and vegetables.
