Description

100% Pinot Noir (aged for 15-20 months in oak casks) In 1903 in Nuits-Saint-Georges, Alexandre de Mayol de Lupé and Félix de Cholet decided to join forces to create the House which still bears their name, Lupe Cholet. Owners of 25 hectares (61,5 acres) of vineyards in Chablis and the Côte d’Or, they also have long-established partnerships with various wine growers throughout Burgundy. Deep ruby-red colour with raspberry gleams. Initially in the nose, there are aromas of forest-floor and slight mushroom, followed by notes of red fruit. Oaky and spicy on the palate, then cherry aromas. Perfect with red meats, red wine sauces, big game dishes, delicate cheese. It can be cellared for further 7-10 years.
