WHAT THE WINEMAKERS ARE SAYING

The nose is characteristic of Pinot Noir with notes of both black fruit and more vegetal expression, brambles, and bay leaves. This Burgundy is vinified and aged to be appreciated in its youth, with 1 or 2 years of aging in the bottle.

OUR NOTES

The Cellier des Dames wines narrate the story of many of the “Dames de Bourgogne“, who, in their way, shaped what Burgundy became. At the forefront of the historical scene, these ladies associated with (and sometimes, but not always, married) the famous Dukes of Burgundy. These handcrafted wines have been created in their honour and in recognition of the impacts they had on the region, its vineyards, and its famous appellations. You’ll find the story of each Dame on the back label of their cuvée.
Jeanne la Folle, Joanna the Mad, Juana la Loca, Johanna die Wahnsinnige: everyone can give the name they want to Joan I of Castile, Duchess of Burgundy. And to appropriate the mad fate of this romantic character whose infinite love leads to madness. But was Jeanne really mad; is it not rather the embodiment of the madness of men?
