'Les Ursulines' Bourgogne Pinot Noir is a lovely cherry red, with aromas of wild strawberry and raspberry. It's silky and smooth, and despite not being a heavy wine, is warming and satisfying. An excellent value Red Burgundy - a wine which can often be a bit disappointing for the money. This went down a treat when we tasted it, and would be perfect when having family over for a Sunday roast.
Jean-Claude Boisset was radically transformed with the arrival in 2002 of viniculteur Grégory Patriat, one of the best viticulturalists/winemakers of his generation in Burgundy. Grégory had spent the previous three years working in the vineyards at Domaine Leroy and still spends a great deal of his time in the vineyards, paying his growers by the hectare in order to ensure low yields. He also prefers to work with organic growers, as he finds they produce better fruit. Unlike other Burgundian négociants, Grégory specialises in making wines from 'lieu-dits' or tiny plots of vines, something which accounts for the limited production of most of his wines.
Jean-Charles Boisset was born into a winemaking family in Burgundy. Today, Jean-Charles, his sister Nathalie, and his parents Jean-Claude and Claudine Boisset are proprietors of a collection of more than 20 great wine estates from the world’s pre-eminent wine producing regions.
