Alexandre Bain began as a merchant with a particular interest in vinifying red grape varieties. He undertook a tour of France to find the finest wine makers willing to sell some o their grapes. His two main criteria were: vines grown organically, and grapes picked by hand. For this cuvée, it was a wine maker from Savigny-les-Beaune who provided him with Pinot Noir grapes. He vinifies this cuvée with the same passion as he does with his own Sauvignon Blancs. The wine is matured in oak barrels for 12 months. It has a ruby colour and an expressive nose of red fruit and spicy notes. Its palate is juicy and indulgent, with all the finesse of the Pinot. Made to be enjoyed within 5 years, it will pair wonderfully with a dish like braised meat.

Vin de France N°21 Alexandre Bain (Domaine) serve at a temperature of 16°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Gibiers à poil en gigue ou en civet, Lasagnes , Tournedos rossini.

Information about domain Alexandre Bain

The son of a winemaker, Alexandre Bain set up his own domain in 2007 at Tracy-sur-Loire (Pouilly-Fumé), after studying oenology at the Beaune Lycée Viticole and after various placements where he worked in particular with winemakers who use natural, organic and bio-dynamic methods. Today his vineyard, covering an area of eleven hectares, has biodynamic certification and is worked using horses. The wines are made without any inputs (indigenous yeasts), they are neither chaptalised nor filtered and contain virtually no sulphites. Alexandre Bain places great emphasis on harvesting his grapes once they are completely ripe. This tends to lessen the Sauvignon's varietal aspect (boxwood aroma) while emphasizing the terroir instead, but on the other hand it brings out the mineral quality and a fine acidity. Bain's originality means that his wines do not full under an appellation. Regardless of this wine lovers remain loyal to him. With rare candour, Alexandre Bain's wines express the typical characteristics of their terroir; they are deep and generous, with pure aromas and incredible drinkability.
