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 a long history of Burgundian winemaking, they vinify their wines in an old castle in Ladoix and age the wines in barrels in cellars that date back to the 17th Century situated in the very heart of Beaune.
Bearing a dark ruby hue, an intoxicating aroma of wild blackberries, spicy undertones, clove notes and a whisper of raspberry reduction permeate the senses. The palate presents an exquisite tapestry of opulent dark fruits laced with nuances of espresso and a dash of black pepper. The well-integrated tannins lend a perfect depth to the vivacious fruit character, orchestrating a harmonious, velvety finish that echoes long after the final sip.
This delightful offering will impeccably accompany a sumptuous beef Wellington wrapped in truffle-infused mushroom duxelles, or a game pheasant adorned with a rich dark cherry sauce. A truffle and mushroom risotto or venison loin with a dark fruit compote will also provide an exceptional culinary pairing, ensuring a memorable Burgundian feast.
Sourced from the esteemed Gevrey Chambertin appellation, a region known for producing some of Burgundy's most robust and age-worthy Pinot Noirs, the 2019 iteration truly reflects the elegance and finesse typical of this illustrious appellation. Its complex flavour profile and refined structure encapsulate the exceptional conditions of the vintage, making it a wine worth savouring and cellaring. It's a vivid testament to the meticulous craft that Pierre Mayeul pours into every bottle.
