The Denis Carré domaine was founded in 1975 by Denis and his wife, Bernadette, in the village of Meloisey. Their children Martial and Gaëtane have since taken over, with Martial as the winemaker who studied at the Lycee Viticole in Beaune. They have 13ha of sustainably grown vineyards that are located on the most famous hillsides in Burgundy, with some of the vines being as old as 70 years in age. The ‘La Perriere’ cuvée comes from 45-year-old vines planted in clay and limestone soils and is aged for 11 months in French oak barrels after fermentation. It exudes plush cherry and raspberry aromas and flavors. It’s a very pure expression of pinot noir that is smooth and fresh with elegant, well-integrated tannin, a touch of earth, and excellent balance. Sustainably grown, vegan.
