The historic Domaine Bertagna once belonged to the Cistercian monks, well-known for founding the Clos de Vougeot in the 13th century. The estate’s cellars and vineyards remain situated in the center of the community close by the Château and its own ancient Chapter Home, however the winery is normally possessed since 1985 with the world-renowned Reh family members and maintained by Eva Reh-Siddle. With 18 wonderfully diverse appellations over the area, 12 which are Top and Grand crus, Bertagna is one of the top rank Domaines in Burgundy. A desire to have perfection and focus on quality, in conjunction with significant investments in technology and vineyard administration, result in a number of the region’s most powerful wines. Domaine Bertagna could very well be most widely known because of its elegant, silky crimson wines, but it addittionally produces among the world’s rarest white wines – Vougeot 1er Cru Blanc Les Cras” in the Côtes de Nuits.
After strict pruning and a mid-season green harvest to regulate produces, the grapes are hand-picked in little boxes with hand-sorting on the vineyard as well as the winery to make sure only the best possible grapes. Pre-fermentation frosty maceration is normally accompanied by alcoholic fermentation at 28°C, with malolactic fermentation in barrels. Just natural yeast in the grapes can be used and your wine is normally personally punched down and still left to ferment in tanks for 21 to 28 times. Aged in French oak barrels (no brand-new) for a year.
Aromas of cherry, strawberry and a hint of toffee can be found on the nasal area.
In the mouth area, the wine includes a delicate floral and berry palate which is nuanced by supple oak and vanilla characteristics.
