Cote De Nuits, France
The Tortochot estate has been in the family for 4 generations. Here cultivation and vinification are managed with the greatest respect for Burgundian traditions. Vineyard management is classic: low-trained vines, which are very densely planted. To protect the terroir the family, led in the day-to-day running of the estate by Chantal Tortochot, decided to convert the whole of the vineyard to organic agriculture in 2008.
The estate has a unique sub-soil made up of different types of limestone and a perfect mixture of clay and marne, creating rich complex Pinot Noir wines. The wines are traditional in style and benefit from ageing before being drunk.
