As you could expect from the higher hills outside Beaune this vibrant pinot is more in the savoury and spice spectrum. Raspberry and cherry crunchy fruits with fine chalky tannins and plenty of acidity. Give it a good decant to open. 13% alc. - Michael L
The Domaine Henri Delagrange, in Volnay, Côte d'Or, owns fourteen and a half hectares of vines in the best situations in Côte de Beaune. The family business is run by Didier Delagrange, vine grower and wine maker, who produces high quality Burgundy wines.
The family Domaine has been in existence for more than six generations. From 1978, it included the vines of Gisèle Verdereau and Henri Delagrange who then worked 6 hectares, mainly in Volnay and Pommard. Didier joined the business in 1990, after completing his viticulture studies, and worked with his parents until 2003. During these years together, they planted the Bourgognes Hautes-Côtes de Beaune Blancs (first vines planted in 1990) and the Bourgognes Hautes-Côtes de Beaune Rouges (first vines planted in 1999). The Domain then covered thirteen and a half hectares.
From 2003, Didier has been on his own at the head of the Domaine with his wife, Hélène. The area planted with vines was expanded again with 65 acres of Aloxe Corton 'Les Caillettes " in 2004 and 45 acres of Meursault in 2005, and now covers fourteen and a half hectares.
The Domain has adopted sustainable cultivation methods to preserve the natural interaction between the vines and the land.
