Les Terrasses des Vallerots Producer: Betrand et Axelle Machard de Gramont Region: Burgundy - France Grape variety: Pinot Noir Color: Rouge Harvest: 2017 Quantity: 75cl
Planted in 1984, above the terraces, on half a hectare. More deeply rooted, this vine produces a wine of fine aromatic purity, fine, with a mineral character.
Following a separation with his brothers, Bertrand Machard de Gramont created his Vineyard in 1983. He replanted the spectacular Vallerots terraces, a very steep hillside hill on the heights of Nuits-Saint-Georges. It is on this appellation that most of the vines in this small estate are found.
After another life, Bertrand's daughter, Axelle, returned to the estate in 2004. She initiated the organic transition (certified in 2014) and a gentle job, such as treading on the foot in tapered wooden vats after destemming. The choices of this energetic young woman are paying off and the wines deliver dense and unvarnished expressions of their respective terroirs, still a little too marked by cold maceration.
