Yves Duport - Terre Rouge - Bugey, France

£26.00

100% Pinot Noir

Yves farms 10 ha of vines biodynamically with great success in the Bugey, a tiny appellation of only 500 ha. He makes elegant, precise and controlled wines from Pinot, Mondeuse, Altesse (Rousette) and Chardonnay. Across all of Yves cuvees you have finesse and balance, his wine all showing great quality for price. The geology of Bugey is similar to its neighbour, Savoie – fragmented parcels of vines planted in steep slopes above the valley floor. The sedimentary soils date back to a time when dinosaurs roamed and the climate was tropical.

The Terre Rouge is bold but refined, with great structure. 80 year old vine Pinot from Yves parcel ‘Sous le Chateau’ (under the castle), where Pinot and Mondeuse are planted row for row. The 2018 is showing soft, smooth tannins. Hand harvested, de-stemmed and macerated for 2 weeks, then 11 months in old oak. 2018 was a sunny vintage and the Terre Rouge has all the ingredients for some ageing potential. A great autumnal wine, Pinot with some real depth!

Tasting notes: Classic Pinot fruit, earthy, forest floor and smoky notes.

Food pairing: Something rustic from a big pot. Okra, smoked sausage and shrimp gumbo with rice!
