The Sarrazin brothers are known for making spectacular high-altitude Côte Chalonnaise Burgundy from the village of Jambles, a tiny hamlet just outside of Givry that is 300 meters above sea level. The brothers have gained a reputation over the last decade for being meticulous stewards of their high-altitude vineyards around Givry, Mercurey and Maranges. They craft traditional wines that show a clarity of terroir not common in the region, with all of the fruit de-stemmed and extraction kept to a minimum. All of the wines are aged in barrique exclusively from the famed tonnelier Francois Frères and are bottled unfined and unfiltered. These are pure and mineral driven wines that deliver, textured and balanced Pinot Noir. Sustainable farming practice.
Domaine Michel Sarrazin et Fils Le Pierrier Mercurey Rouge is made from grapes from 40+ year old vines, grown in clay/limestone soil. De-stemmed and fermented with indigenous yeast, aged in barrels (50% new). Unfined and unfiltered.
With flavors of fresh red fruits and spice on the palate, this lively and fruity wine stands out above all for its aromatic persistence.
