Lucien Muzard Bourgogne Rouge, France 2020
Brothers Claude and Hervé Muzard are the ninth generation to manage this family domaine that dates to 1645! This is an unlikely Santenay, as the region has a reputation for delivering a "rustic" style of wine. Muzard's wines portray an elegant style of Pinot Noir, highlighting aromas of a perfectly ripe cherry, red currant, button mushroom, & a pleasant earthy quality bolstered by refreshing acidity & well integrated soft tannin.
Grape: Pinot Noir (Sourced from three parcels from 1950s plantings located in Santenay, lower Chassagne, and in the Hautes Cotes de Beaune, blended together at harvest)
Soil: Granite in the Hautes Cotes and clay-limestone in lower Chassagne and Santeney
Viticulture: Biodynamic practicing
