Jaffelin’s history is inseparable from that of the Collégiale Notre Dame de Beaune (the Notre Dame collegiate church in Beaune). The Chapitre’s cellars changed ownership in 1816, the date when the Jaffelin brothers established their ‘maison de négoce’ (trading house).
A true ‘Vin de France’ – a blend of Pinot Noirs from the Languedoc (80%), Burgundy (10%) and the Loire (10%).
The influence of the southern climate gives this wine ripe and jammy nuances of dark fruits such as blackcurrant, blackberry and black cherry. 80% of the Pinot Noir come from Pays d’Oc for the colour, the roundness and the fruits; and 20% from the Loire for the minerality and acidity of the Pinot. The wine is vinified in stainless steel tanks and no oak is used in order to keep the freshness of the ripe Pinot Noir grapes.
A lively cherry and red berry-scented pinot, with a soft and rounded pallet with black cherry and blackcurrant flavours.
Perfect with a Sunday roast, duck confit, lamb tandoori or shroom sausages and mash!
