Chantal Lescure, Passetoutgrain 2010Regular price $34.00 Save $-34.00
The Lescure Domaine is among the newer winemaking families, but just as fierce. Chantal Lescure was begun in 1975 by Chantal and her husband Xavier. They claimed 18 hectares of land strewn throughout Chambolle-Musigny in the Cote de Nuits and the Volnay in Cote de Beaune. Today their two sons coordinate the running of the estate and farm from parcels running from Dijon in the north to Meursault in the south. The Domaine takes organic farming very seriously, as they have been practicing full organics since 2000; they're even certified by Ecocert.
Typically the Passetoutgrain style boasts about two thirds Gamay in its blend, but this wine come from Nuits-Saint-Georges, so it is only right that it is comprised more of Pinot Noir. The blend is two thirds Pinot Noir to one third Gamay. The grapes are usually grown and harvested together in the same field and then "all thrown in together," which is how the wine gets the name "Passetoutgrain."
