Niellon, MichelChassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos de la Maltroie

Niellon, MichelChassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos Saint Jean Rouge
Pinot Noir from Burgundy, France
Clos Saint-Jean is planted almost entirely to Chardonnay, but the small section where Pinot Noir is grown has conditions very similar to those of the red wine vineyards in neighboring Santenay. Pretty red-cherry and raspberry aromas pick up some black pepper spice and deeper fruit on the palate.
