Due to a combination of expense, demand, and old Napoleonic laws, the majority of Burgundy vineyards are divided into plots with different owners. A Monopole vineyard, however, has just one owner, allowing for complete control over the production of its wine - from vine to bottle. This suave expression of Pinot Noir comes from Louis Max's Clos la Marche Monopole, centrally located in the appellation of Mercurey. With time in the glass, the wine reveals an intense bouquet of black cherry and red plum accompanied by scents of fresh roses, smoke, and distinct minerality. There's real weight and structure on the palate as fine-grained tannins and juicy acidity crescendo into a fruit-filled finish. Elegant Red Burgundy is such a treat, and we're delighted to share this special one with you!
