When — 2019

A beautifully fine elegant and racy Rosé with real finesse and excellent character and complexity.

+ Read More

After 11 years at the helm of his family’s domain from 1994 to 2005, Pierre-Yves took the brave step to break out on his own, forming the label of Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey. Pierre-Yves acquired a share of the family vineyards and worked with other growers to access different appellations to complement his range of wines. A micro-negociant of sorts, he has solidified himself as one of Burgundy’s greatest white wine producers since establishing his own estate. His reputation for amazing whites extends to a very small production of his Rosé de Pinot Noir. 

The Rosé de Pinot Noir comes from a 55-year old single vineyard plot ‘En vignes Baudet’ in the Hautes Côtes de Beaune. It sits on a combination of clay and limestone, resulting in wines of freshness and complexity. The wine is directly pressed, to produce very gentle colour extraction. It is then aged in larger old oak barrels and later bottled unfined and unfiltered. 

The precise nature of Pierre-Yves’ deft hand in the winery extends right across his production, with his Rosé de Pinot Noir being no exception.

Domaine de la Cras Bourgogne L’Équilibriste Rosé

Notes of cherry skins, lilac, white pepper, and blueberry skin, delicately perfumed with a vibrancy and moderate texture on the palate

In 2013, the city of Dijon purchased a 160-hectare agricultural property called Domaine de la Cras, located at the fringe of the city. The former owner has already built a winery and planted 8 hectares of vineyards (5 hectares of Red & 3 hectares of Blanc) on land classified Bourgogne AOC with the intention to plant an additional 13 hectares. An open call for proposals was held to decide who would take over the winemaking, with primary criterion being that the vineyards had to be farmed organically; the winner had to be a young winemaker with no existing family vineyards, and have interest in opening the domaine to the public for educational visits. Marc Soyard emerged the victor. From a non-winemaking family based in the Jura, Marc had previously worked at the acclaimed Domaine Bizot, in both the vineyards and cellars. He took the hands-off, natural philosophy which he had learnt to Domaine de la Cras.

L’Équilibriste was initially created for a local circus festival near Dijon, hence the “razor’s edge” balancing act seen on the label. It comes from a 4.5 hectare vineyard situated in Bessy on clay-limestone soil. With the oldest vines dating back to 1983, L’Équilibriste sees a very short maceration period, drawing only moderate colour before being aged for six months in stainless steel tanks without any added sulphur.

Chapuis Frères Coteaux Bourguignons Rosé

What — Rosé (100% Pinot Noir)
Where — Burgundy, France
When — 2019

Delicate colour expressing the lighter side of Rosé. Restrained flavours of raspberry coulis and ripe plums that will blossom with time in the glass.

The Chapuis brothers Romain and Guillaume own a very small winery in the heart of Pommard, Burgundy. After working with Philippe Pacalet, one of the leading producers of the natural wine movement in Burgundy, they launched their own estate in 2009. The duo work with a number of growers to complement their fruit sources in an organic fashion. Their Coteaux Bourguignons Rosé is sourced from 2 plots in Couchois located in the south of the Côte de Beaune, with its oldest vines being 65 years old. 

Grown over four départements across Burgundy, the appellation Coteaux Bourguignons was created in 2011 and covers red, white, and rosé wines. It acts as an umbrella term for some of the satellite regions within Burgundy. 

Their Coteaux Bourguignons Rosé is handled very gently in the winery; a direct maceration results in the most delicate colour. It then spends 6 months in old barrels.  A small amount of sulphur has been added to the wine to retain its purity and youthful fruit character. A total of only 6 barrels was produced for this cuvée, making it incredibly sought after by those aware of the quality of wines by Romain and Guillaume.

Description

Rosé is often the default choice for casual sips in the sunshine – perfect for easy drinking in the park or at the beach as worries are shrugged off in favour of sun-kissed shoulders. That said, an element of complexity in Rosé makes it still worthy of more thoughtful consideration and discovery. Leading producers who used to shun Rosé production are now embracing it in their repertoires.

Here we present an extremely limited quantity of some of the most exciting Rosé examples coming from Burgundy.
