Pierre Mayeul is the story of three old friends united by the same passion for Burgundy and with a shared goal to produce high-quality wines where each cuvee beautifully represents the individual terroir and 'climat' of each appellation. Each with long histories of Burgundian winemaking they are vinifying their wines in an old castle in Ladoix and ageing the wines in barrels in cellars that date back to the 17th Century situated in the very heart of Beaune.
Spends 18 months in 50% new French oak barrels adding beautiful complexity. Dark cherry colour with concentrated fruit on the nose, revealing blackberry, violet, hazelnut and nutmeg. The onset on the mouth carries fleshy and supple tannins, followed by a crunchy and bold palate, finishing off on silky smooth persistent fruit.
Deserves a robust meat dish such as game, prime rib or lamb.
Will develop beautifully in bottle for another 10 years.
