Rich, full bodied and expressive. Stone fruits, vanilla, spice and mineral.
Tasting Notes: Intense aromas of white stone fruits, with toasty nuttiness and vanilla hints. The palate is full and expressive - showing white peach, ripe lemon with excellent depth and texture leading to hints of buttery vanilla, a touch of cloves and smokey spice with a lovely tangy mineral twist in the finish.
Founded in 1816, the maison Jaffelin house is now considered the smallest of the great houses of Burgundy, one of the few that still makes wine in the historical centre of Beaune in oval wooden vats. The Jaffelin estate presses its grapes in a vertical wine-press; a rare, traditional technique using handmade vats. The house Jaffelin vinifies and ages his wines in the historic centre of Beaune in the prestigious cellars of the Chapter of Our Lady of the twelfth century, maintaining traditional methods. This allows for “hand sewn” wines coming from “small villages” as Rully, Santenay, Monthélie, Fixin but also best known villages such as Beaune, Gevrey-Chambertin, Nuits-Saint-Georges, Chambolle Musigny.
