Collin-Bourisset Haute Vigne Pinot Noir
The grapes that make up this 100% Pinot Noir are automatically harvested with total destemming. Maceration occurs for 10 to 15 days in thermoregulated stainless steel tanks. 12 to 18 months after harvest the wine is bottled. This Pinot Noir presents a ruby colour with purple nuances and a nice intensity.
Created in 1821, Collin Bourisset is located in Crêches-sur-Saône at the edge of the Beaujolais and Mâconnais districts. Beyond producing its own in-house wines, Collin Bourisset is the exclusive producer and marketer for the Hospices de Romanèche-Thorins as well as the Hospices de Lyon. Since the Medieval Ages, hospitals in Burgundy accumulated rows and soon hectares of vines as payment for their care of growers and their families. In the last century, and until 1926, each vintage of the Hospices was sold at public auction to provide funding for the care of the sick. An alternative to the more costly Hospices de Beaune, the wines of Hospices de Romanèche-Thorins and Hospices de Lyon have a rich history that compliments their classic Burgundy heritage.
Vibrant and fresh aromas of wild strawberries and raspberries follow through to a hint of oregano and blackberry on the nose. Medium weight with lifted acidity, the palate shows dark fruits woven between notes of mocha and a kiss of oak, leading to a smoky, mineral-laced finish.
