2020 Domaine d'Ardhuy Côte de Nuits Villages
Domaine d'Ardhuy is a Burgundy house that quickly became one of the top 5 producers in the region. Very extensive choice of terroirs, and high quality from the base to the Cru's.
Gabriel Ardhuy helped with the 1947 harvest in Burgundy and met his future wife Eliane, daughter of a winegrower from Burgundy. They have seven daughters. The d'Ardhuy family has long owned the trading house Pierre André, headquartered at Château Corton-André. This will be sold in 2002, so that all attention can be paid to the own vineyards and the development of the own domain. The Ardhuy family owns more than 40 hectares of vineyards in magnificent plots and also owns a company in the Rhone. For both domains a subsidiary has been appointed to organize it. At the beginning of 2003, Carel Voorhuis, son of a lawyer from Maastricht who had previously bought a winery in the Jura, comes in as a 'régisseur'. And then things go fast: already in 2004, the Revue de Vins de France chose Ardhuy as number 3 of producers in the Côte de Beaune and as number 4 in the Côte de Nuits.
The Domaine d'Ardhuy Côte de Nuits Villages comes from a 1.3 HA Pinot Noir vineyard located in Burgundy/Cote de Nuits. The vineyard is located on limestone soil from the Bathonic and Callovian eras. Located on a south-eastern slope that lends itself to good drainage and a luminous and airy microclimate. In the glass, this Pinot noir has the typical light red color with some earthy tone in the nose and red fruit such as strawberry and raspberry. In the mouth, this Pinot Noir is surprisingly powerful, fleshy with refined tannins and some oak notes. this is a perfect 'enjoy glass' and a good accompaniment to beef braised in sauce, Epoisses cheese or a sirloin steak.
