Jérôme Galeyrand is the exception that proves that with a passionate hand even people that were not born in the vineyards can make exceptional wines. Jérôme Galeyrand became passionate about wine while working in the food industry. His passion eventually led him to Burgundy where he attended the famous wine school of Beaune to study winemaking. In 2002, he purchased his first vineyards and his first harvest was in September of that year. That first harvesting was carried out entirely by hand by a group of friends and the wine was made in the basement of his home.
This Pinot Noir gem from the Cote de Nuits of Burgundy comes from vines planted on clay-limestone soil. As with all the wines from Jerome Galeyrand, this wine is certified organic. It was aged in oak barrels (20% new) for 16 months. This wine is an assemblage of two parcels in the Cote de Nuits, the youngest vines planted in 1947 and the oldest in 1925 (making them 90 years old!) Beautiful aromas and flavors of cassis and red fruits.
