Domaine Michele & Patrice Rion Nuits St George
Grape Variety: 100% Pinot Noir
Patrice Rion and his wife Michèle began their own small domaine with just two wines in the early 1980s, and now have vineyards in some of the finest areas of Burgundy. Patrice’s style is for very pure, harmonious wines, skilfully vinified and then matured in oak barrels with a well judged percentage of new oak.
Tasting Note: The nose has sweet Asian spices and spicy, dark berry fruit. The palate is pure, saline and savoury, an elegant and delicate expression of Nuits rather than a meaty blockbuster.
