Serge Dore Olivier Chanzy Pinot Noir
Appellation: Vin de France
Blend: 100% Pinot Noir
Born in 1979, OLIVIER CHANZY grew up in the village of Bouzeron, in Burgundy’s Côte Chalonnaise. He studied winemaking with Burgundy greats, apprenticing with his father Daniel (who created the Domaine Chanzy) and Aubert de Villaine (Domaine de la Romanée-Conti) then traveled the world to learn the trade in different regions (Sancerre, Shenandoah Valley etc.). In August 2013, he acquired some old facilities in Meursault and began an adventure, renovating buildings, installing new tanks and starting the harvest within a matter of days. As Christy Canterbury MW, states, in The New Face of France: The Seemingly Impossible Rise of Olivier Chanzy, “Olivier Chanzy is quite clearly part of the new generation of “can do” France. His triumphant story is a tale of determination and a dose of good luck”.
Our rising star in Burgundy, Olivier Chanzy’s energy is immediately evident in his wines and the impressive list of appellations he works in, from Vin de France to Vosne Romanée. He seeks out and sources Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from all over for his wines. This Pinot Noir is a perfect introduction to the art of his winemaking, an invitation on the Vin de France level to discover his skill in crafting an everyday wine infused with the same class and elegance that one finds in his top appellation wines.
His “Collection” Pinot Noir is:
- A selection of chosen parcels of Pinot Noir planted on a majority clay-limestone terroir with a shallow bedrock.
- The limestone bringing a welcome mineral edge to the wine while the clay gives volume and roundness.
- A deep ruby red in appearance, the wine is robust, round and structured, revealing fresh fruit aromas (notes of cherry, for example).
- Silky tannins and good length in mouth assure a lasting balance.
Enjoy on its own as a great aperitif, or paired with simple meat dishes, from burgers to lasagna to skirt steak with grilled vegetables, and great with Friday’s pizza night party!
