Elegance Redefined: Les Gollardes' Whisper

The Vine's Legacy: Domaine du Prieure's Craft

Nestled at the gateway of Savigny-les-Beaune lies Domaine du Prieure, a beacon of winemaking tradition and innovation since 1921. Under the watchful guidance of Stephan Maurice, a torch passed down from Jean-Michel, the estate's wines have become synonymous with depth, elegance, and refinement. The transition to organic viticulture in Spring 2019 marks a new chapter in their storied history, promising wines that reflect the Maurice family's passion and their commitment to sustainability and the land's health.

Les Gollardes: A Pinot Noir Symphony

From the esteemed "Les Gollardes" parcel, this 2018 Pinot Noir is a masterclass in balance and terroir expression. Cultivated on a modest 1.9-acre plot at 280 meters elevation, the 52-year-old vines yield a limited 400 cases, embodying the meticulous care and attention bestowed upon them. The gravelly soil, enriched with oolitic ironstone, imbues the grapes with a unique mineral complexity, while the conscientious vinification process—complete destemming, cold soaking, and careful oak maturation—ensures a wine of unparalleled depth and character.

Tasting Journey: The Essence of "Les Gollardes"

Adorned in light ruby, "Les Gollardes" 2018 invites a contemplative exploration of its incredible, restrained aromas. Notes of red and dark currant mingle with earthy undertones and a whisper of humus, setting the stage for a vibrant and supple palate. The rich and round flavors culminate in a finish that, while slightly warm, leaves a lasting impression of refined sophistication.

Pairing Perfection: Culinary Companions

This Savory and Classic Pinot Noir finds its match in dishes that echo its complexity and grace:

  • Beef Carpaccio: An Italian masterpiece, the delicate beef fillet, paired with rocket and parmesan mayonnaise, mirrors the wine's subtle elegance.
  • Pheasant with Bread Sauce: A traditional British fare, enhancing the wine's earthy notes and vibrant character.
  • Fillet Steak in Brioche: A French delicacy that complements the wine's depth and refined tannins.
  • Osso Bucco: The Italian classic, with braised veal shank and white wine, resonates with the wine's layered complexity and rich finish.
