Ah, Burgundy. Just the sound of the word sends many a wine aficionado into rhapsodic ramblings. Most people who've had the fortune to taste many great wines would probably name Burgundyas their greatest wine experience.
This region is very diverse in winemaking practices. Burgundy is a bit of a hodge-podge of growers who literally have rows of vines instead of acres. The average holding for the entire area is less than two acres, making it difficult to produce enough wine commercially.As a result, consistency is non-existent. If you get a fantastic bottle today, it may be totally different in the next vintage.
Maison L'Envoye is in a Southern Burgundy region called the Cote de Beaune. Like all reds here, it is made from 100% Pinot Noir.
Maison L'Envoye has had a rich history of buying grapes from the best growers and making sure they follow strict conventions to deliver excellent grapes every year. Very few producers take this approach.
Here is a sensational Burgundy! All the rose petals, cotton candy, and tart cherry envelops the palate and lingers long after the elixir is swallowed.
It is a prime example of one of the most heralded wine regions on Earth.
