ABOUT THE PRODUCER
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.
The grapes were gently pressed in a bladder press, after which the juice is settled for a day. Post-fermentation the wine is aged in 30% in French oak barriques, with regular stirring of the lees, and aged for a further 15 months.

TASTING NOTES
An elegant and complex wine with a beautiful bouquet of roasted nuts, honeyed pear, and vanilla custard. The palate is layered with flavours of creamy carbonara sauce, earthy wild mushrooms, and a hint of truffle oil. The wine's silky texture is balanced by bright acidity and finishes with a long, lingering note of toasted pumpkin seeds.

FOOD PAIRING 

Linguine carbonara with pancetta, parmesan cheese, and a creamy sauce, Creamy risotto with wild mushrooms and truffle oil, and Butternut squash soup with toasted pumpkin seeds and a dollop of crème fraîche. 

FRIARWOOD SAYS
The wine is a testament to Mayeul's dedication to sustainable farming and minimalist winemaking practices, resulting in a rich and complex wine.
