Desertaux Ferrand



Domaine Désertaux-Ferrand is a family Domaine founded in 1899 and is located in Corgoloin, Burgundy.
The estate covers a total of 20 hectares of vines with about 10 hectares in Cote de Nuits Villages. The terroir is made up of Limestone with a south east exposure. The middle of the slopes are dedicated to the village D.O, and the foot of the slopes are for the regional D.O. They’re advocates of sustainable viticulture processes, and don’t use any herbicides or phytosanitary products. In a region devoted to Chardonnay, the historical presence of the Pinot Blanc grape variety is a remarkable feature of the estate.
The grapes are harvested by hand for the village and 1er Cru D.O, and the use of indigenous yeasts and the thermoregulation of all their tanks allows the fermentation to take place in the best conditions.

Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir wines are made in a few places throughout France but the most famous region by far is Burgundy, “Bourgogne.”
The world’s most coveted Pinot Noir vines grow on a narrow, east-facing slope just South of Dijon. Burgundy is a very old wine region and was first tended by Cistercian monks in the Middle Ages.
When tasting French Pinot Noir, you may note its more earthy and floral style. This is part of Burgundy’s terroir. In fact, many fine winemakers here choose to ferment with whole grape clusters to increase tannin in their Pinot Noir wines. This effort may result in bitterness early on, but results in wines that age 20 plus years.

Les Sceaux

Les Sceaux is a Premier Cru climat (a Burgundy-specific term for vineyard site) of the Beaune appellation in Burgundy. Wines featuring this name on the label are rare, though at least two producers makes a red wine from Pinot Noir.
The Les Sceaux site is located on the lower slopes of the Côte d’Or escarpment on the edge of Beaune town.
