BOURGOGNE
 

Bourgogne, also called Burgundy, same as Bordeaux, is the soul of French wine. Viticulture in Burgundy can traced back to 2nd century. The region runs from Chablis in the north, then Côte d'Or, to Mâcon in the south. Côte d'Or are the soul of Bourgogne wines, splitting into Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune. The majority of red wine production in the Côte d'Or is the Pinot noir grape, while white wines are the chardonnay grape.
 
Bourgogne is terroir-oriented region in France. Opposed to Bordeaux, Bourgogne classifications are geographically-focused. A specific vineyard or region will bear a given classification, regardless of the wine's producer. The main levels in the Bourgogne classifications, in descending order of quality, are: Grand crus, Premier crus, village appellations, and finally regional appellations

About Domaine Nicolas Rossignol

HIGH QUALITY DOMAINE FLYING UNDER THE RADAR

Nicolas Rossignol was born 1974, the 5th generation of winegrowers in Volnay.  After studies in high school of wine making in Beaune, Nicolas practices on different estates like  Domaine JOSEPH VOILLOT in Volnay,  Domaine LOUIS LATOUR in Ardèche and Domaine du VIEUX TELEGRAPHE in Châteauneuf du Pape. In 1997, he created his own estate with 3 ha on the village of Volnay, Pommard, Beaune, Aloxe-Corton and Pernand-Vergelesses. The wines of the Nicolas Rossignol estate are produced using carefully sorted grapes from vineyards grown using traditional winemaking techniques inspired by biodynamics.
 
The vineyard is managed using reasoned viticulture methods, taking account of the lunar influence, both during cultivation and the production & elevage of the wine. No chemical herbicides are used. Soil maintenance is ensured through light ploughing. The harvesting is exclusively carried out by hand using tradition-based Burgundy wine-making techniques. Each bunch is placed by the grape gatherers into small 8kg boxes, thereby avoiding any further handling between the time they are picked and the time they are sorted. The harvested grapes are not “crushed”.

The elevage can vary from 10-20 months depending on the vintage. This takes place on fine lees; the wines are never racked. The casks, and in particular the origin of the wood, are carefully selected in order to best comply with the agreement between the terroirs and to ensure the character of each wine. The percentage of new casks used is adapted according to the year and the terroir, between 0-50%. Malolactic fermentation is delayed so that it only occurs about 6 months later, in the following Spring, thereby giving greater aromatic complexity and structure to the wine. The lunar calendar will influence when the elevage ends: the wines on the lees are racked and mixed together so as to homogenise the content of the vat.
 
The wine is bottled a few weeks afterwards without fining or filtration.
