About the domain
Situated in the heart of the Côte de Beaune and spread over three villages (Savigny-Lès-Beaune, Pernand-Vergelesses et Aloxe-Corton), this domain was bought in 1834 by Countess Chandon de Briailles. It has been belonged to the same family ever since. A pioneer of bioydynamics in the region, the domain is also known for its élevages using very little new oak. These wines, perfectly suited to cellaring, are sought-after for their refinement and delicacy.More information : Read the article about domain Chandon de Briailles on the blog
About the cuvée
Au sud de Pernand-Vergelesses, le domaine Chandon de Briailles dispose de 3 hectares de vignes de pinot noir âgées d’une quarantaine d’années. Celles-ci bénéficient d’une culture sur des sols d’argile et de calcaire typiques de la région. Récoltés manuellement, ils ont ensuite été vinifiés selon la tradition bourguignonne et ont été élevés entre 14 et 18 mois en barriques de chênes usagés. A la dégustation, il séduit par la finesse de ses arômes fruitées et légèrement épicés. Droit et puissant, il gagnera à vieillir quelques années en cave.

How to enjoy
General : The «bio» designation covers certified wines produced by biodynamic or organic methods, sustainably produced wines, and «environmentally friendly» wines that are not officially certified. These designations apply to recent vintages (the date of certification, if known, is specified in the estate description). See the blog article for more information on this designation.
Biodynamic : The «biodynamic» designation is used for all estates certified as using biodynamic methods, as verified by one of the two official bodies, Demeter or Biodyvin. All wines produced by biodynamic methods are also certified as organic. This designation applies to recent vintages.
Organic : The «organic» designation covers all estates certified as using organic methods, as verified by one of the bodies approved by the Ministry of Agriculture, such as Ecocert. This designation applies to recent vintages.
Sustainable : The «sustainable» designation covers all estates certified as using integrated or High Environmental Value (level 3 Environmental Certification) techniques. This designation applies to recent vintages.
Evironmentally friendly : The «environmentally friendly» designation refers to estates practising environmentally friendly wine-growing techniques, but that have not opted for certification or who are still in the process of converting to organic agriculture or biodynamics. These estates may have adopted biodynamic principles (non-certified) or simply no longer use chemical products. This designation applies to recent vintages.
Natural : Wines which are produced without any added sulfur (or almost any) and with no other inputs. However, given that there is no official body to issue the natural wine label, it is based on winemakers’ statements. This designation applies to recent vintages.
