About The Producer

Domaine Ninot is a family estate based in Rully in the Côte Chalonnaise. Since 2003 Erell Ninot has been at the helm cultivating 10 ha in the Rully and Mercurey, a third of which are 1er crus. Erell received the prestigious “best young winemaker” in Burgundy distinction. Today, she works alongside her brother, Flavien. The stand-out characteristic of the Domaine’s wines is their staggeringly fruit-forward profile. The Domaine's Organic Certification is in process.

Terroir & Vineyard Practices:

Marissou is a 3.5-acre Premier Cru vineyard that sits at the very northern point of the appellation, making the site the closest in all of the Côte Chalonnaise to the heralded Côte de Beaune. You can pretty much throw a stone from this site to Santenay.

Tasting Notes

Intensely perfumed, this wine has soft tannins and a smooth, red-fruit-dominated texture. From a 3.5-acre premier-cru vineyard, it is ripe while light in character.
