2017 Domaine Ballorin, Côte de Nuit Village, Le Village
ORIGIN: Burgundy, France
GRAPE: Pinot Noir
Special Notes: Organic & Natural.
Gilles Ballorin and his wife Fabienne started out quite modestly in 2005 – with only 0.60 hectares of vines. After many years in the wine business working with other things they decided to go into production themselves, creating a domaine of their own. Today they have five hectares of vines, a giant winery in Morey-Saint-Denis and Bordeaux style labels on the bottles.
Pungently earthy aromas of both red and dark pinot fruit lead to attractively textured, delicious and sappy flavors that are quite forward and like the Bourgogne should drink well immediately
Food Recommendation: Charred House-poached Octopus Risotto, Sakura Pork, Hokkaido Scallop with Pork Belly
