"From Comblanchien with love". Located just to the south of Nuits-Saint-Georges, the village Comblanchien is very few discussed among Burgundy drinkers. In Antoine's mind, the terroirs are hugely undervalued so he treats the vineyards as if they are Grand Crus.
In 2016, the Domaine began to certify their vineyards organic and since the quality of the wines increases year by year. Ploughing is done with horse labour in a way to limit soil compaction. And of course, the lunatic cycle is taken into consideration. The decision of going biodynamic is a commitment towards nature and to better level their wines.
Horse ploughing, hand harvest, whole cluster, no additives, no sulphur, unfined and unfiltered, as natural as it gets. Sees no more than 10% new oak, still, Antoine suggests to decant the recent vintages to better reveal its' potential. Expect something extremely gulpable with a slightly funky touch.
Don't hesitate to decant the wines, even the Bourgogne rouge, it will change your mind!
