What we say

A gorgeously smooth and silky wine, with typical red Burgundy aromas of red cherries, earthiness and smoke. The generous length makes this a perfect pairing with rich sauces, duck, risottos and wild mushrooms.

 

What they say

The wine is of a beautiful, golden colour. It boasts delicious aromas of acidic cherry and gooseberry and to taste, the palate is balanced, very likeable and has a mineral character.

About the producer Fontaine aux Etoiles

We take a very hands-on approach to our wine production. We realise it takes a lot of patience and knowledge to work the land and that the only way we can continue to improve and achieve is by listening to our elders. We are currently the 11th generation of winemakers, we manage 13 hectares of the best Côte de Beaune appellations. I personally see winemaking as a lifestyle, not a job; we live with the vines, working rain or shine through each process of the winemaking. This is my passion and I have my heritage to thank for that.
