Description

Domaine de Valmoissine is located on the site of the ancient monastery of Valmoissine at 500 meters above sea-level. This guarantees sunshine during the summer months whilst remaining cool at night and limits the possibility of spring frosts. The vineyard's southern exposure gives the grapes perfect maturity at the same time as the Grands Crus of Corton. The yield is small in order to ensure perfect maturity and concentration of the grapes, the factors that create the best quality wines. This results in an elegant wine with remarkable finesse.

Wine tasting notes

Our Pinot Noir from Domaine de Valmoissine 2016 has a ruby color and a complexe nose with cocoa and ripe fruits from south of France, such as strawberry. The mouth is ample and round with silky tannins and hints of forest floor. Nice persistancy in the mouth.
