The "guide Hachette des Vins" classes us among its very favorite wines for our Bourgogne Coulanges CuvĂ©e Coline 2010 !
"Un Coulanges la Vineuse qui adjoint 15 % de cĂ©sar dans son pinot noir, un Ă©levage en foudre de chĂȘne pendant 12 mois : Magali Bernard et son mari Arnaud sortent des sentiers battus. Pas Ă©tonnant que cette cuvĂ©e Coline (du nom de leur fille) ait obtenu un coup de cĆur.
Un vin en tout point remarquable, la dĂ©licatesse mĂȘme. Le nez est bien typĂ©, sur la cerise griotte. En bouche, c'est le paradis : une attaque douce, des tanins fins et racĂ©s, de la rondeur et de la finesse, une aciditĂ© parfaitement assimilĂ©e : "De la force dans l'Ă©quilibre" conclut un dĂ©gustateur."
Come and taste it without waiting !
Back in the days as they were farmers and cherry producers, they started developing the vineyard to nowadays reach 14 hectares (34,6 acres) of planted vines mainly with Pinot Noir but also with Chardonnay and Gamay.
One admirable wine after the other the reputation grows. The wines from the Domaine are exclusively sold in bottles to consumers and at the best tables locally and in nearby Paris.
All the wines are grown with oak, should it be in traditional barrels or in gigantic foudres, however only the Chanvan âCuvĂ©eâ unleashed an oaky side. The slow evolution and complexity of our wines directly comes from the attention we pay to the winemaking and winegrowing process.
In 2001 their daughter Magali moves back to Coulanges la Vineuse and immediately takes over the winemaking process. In 2005 she partners with her parents and Arnaud Hennoque joins her not too long after.
Together they develop new âcuvĂ©esâ such as âCuvĂ©e Colineâ inspired by their daughter. It is a blend of CĂ©sar and Pinot Noir. They also start selling on fairs and trade shows. Consumers can still purchase their wines directly from the Domaine in a beautiful family owned arched wine cellar. They are open Monday to Saturday and most Sundays. Do join them to taste wines that are made respecting the tradition to offer the full authenticity of the AOC.
Come and discover our full offer through 4 different ranges: red wines, white wines, rosĂ© wines and the sparkling CrĂ©mants.
