Claire Naudin, Myosotis Arvensis, Hautes-Côtes de Beaune, 2018 Magnum
New to Green Man Wines, we are delighted to offer a range of Claire Naudin’s wines. We have many more in the shop, so please pop in or ring for details.
Claire took over her parent’s estate in 1994. Its located in an under the radar spot in Burgundy where Hautes Côte de Beaune meets Hautes Côtes de Nuits. A small estate of 22 hectares it includes some prestigious parcels in Echezeaux, Ladoix and Nuist St-George. In 1998 Claire began producing a new range of wines, each named after a flower from that specific vineyard and where vilification took place without the use of sulphur (but a little is added at bottling if needed). These wines very much reflect the wine making philosophy of Naudin – to work as natural and as sustainable as possible.
Myosotis Arvensis meaning Wild Forget me Not, comes from a 1.7ha vineyard of 20-65 year old Pinot Noir situated in the Hautes Cotes de Beaune. The grapes are vinified using whole bunch fermentation and no sulphur is added, they are then aged in oak barrels, of which 60% are new. The resulting wine is fresh and succulent in style with lots of fresh blackcurrant and floral notes. Drink now or keep for another 3/4 years.
