Pinot Noir










The Roc Breïa Pinot Noir vines are a touch younger than the Chardonnay vines and were planted between 1970 and 1985. This wine is vinified with some 50% whole bunch, followed by maturation in used 500-litre barrels. As for the white, Dancer makes a rigorous barrel selection, eliminating anything he doesn’t like from the final blend. Only 4,000 bottles were produced in 2021.

This is also a bright, juicy, pretty wine; full of redcurrant, raspberry and amaro-scented fruit, complexed by nettle and all kinds of spice. It’s a wonderfully elegant Pinot and a great reminder of what the Mâconnais can deliver from this variety. And why not? It’s Burgundy after all, with clay-limestone soils. This is already drinking well, yet it nonetheless benefits from plenty of air. Decant, serve, and fall in love.

“The Roc Breïa 2021 Pinot Noir is just as charming as its white counterpart, bursting with aromas of red berries, plums, rose petals and orange rind. Medium-bodied, open and supple, with melting tannins and a lively, succulent profile, it will drink well on release.” 89-91 points, William Kelley, The Wine Advocate
