PRODUCER NOTES
Domaine Bonnardot is a family-owned vineyard with three generations of experience in soil working and a passion for producing high-quality wine while respecting the terroir and nature. They completed their conversion to organic farming in 2021 after three years of testing, and continue to experiment with sowing, tillage, and the use of herbal teas and essential oils. They also prioritize promoting biodiversity by maintaining dry-stone walls, hedges, woods, and bee hives.
 
TASTING NOTES
Made from grapes grown in a Premier Cru parcel that was planted in 1966 on the lieu-dit called "Belissand" to the south of Beaune on the way to Pommard. It’s planted on deep clay-limestone soils. Despite being lightly woody, the 2019 vintage is very powerful and elegant. It boasts a beautiful aromatic complexity with red and black fruit aromas, liquorice, and chocolate flavours. It is a generous, supple, and concentrated wine that is sure to impress.
 
FOOD PAIRING
An exquisite match for roast or braised fowl, marinated rib roast, Epoisses or Chaource cheese, carrot cake, or chocolate dessert.
 
FRIARWOOD SAYS
The name of the parcel “Bellisand” could originate from the existence of a nearby spring called Béline, or it could have been the place of worship of Bélénos, a water goddess.
