Maurice Gavignet Bourgogne Rouge 2019/20
A magnificent estate, solid know-how and meticulous care for each of their wines clearly distinguishes Maurice Gavignet from other wineries. Maurice Gavignet Bourgogne Rouge is a ruby red bourgogne with ripe blackberries and red cherries on the nose. Creamy cranberry and red fruit compote on the palate with slight toasted notes for a dash of complexity. Elegant and structured, with a gentle pepper burn on the finish. Maurice Gavignet Bourgogne Rouge is an attractive entry-level table wine that is value for money.
“Vinified and aged in our cellar in Nuits Saint Georges, our Cellar Master takes special care to promote the whole extraction and all the nuances of the different terroirs. The idea being to bring out the true expression of the Pinot Noir.” — Arnaud Gavignet, Winemaker.
Harvested by hand and then transported to their vast vaults, Rue Félix Tisserand in Nuits-Saint-Georges, where the wine is vinified and aged. Fermented at controlled temperatures and then aged in French Merrain oak barrels. Further aging occurs after bottling in order to let the wine develop powerful red fruit and blackberry aromas.
