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:
"La Barre” is a special vineyard located on the plateau of Rully with clay and limestone soil.
Hand-harvested from 30-year-old vines, this beautiful, single-vineyard white Burgundy is fresh, with balanced acidity tempered by a bit of weight. Judicious use of oak adds structure while preserving the wine's delicate aromas and flavors. There is a long, fruit-dominated finale.
The grapes for "La Barre" are harvested by hand, so only the best fruit is selected. Erell then manually sorts the grapes to choose only the best for her winemaking. The vines average 30 years old, bringing concentration and complexity to the wine. La Barre is fermented with natural yeasts and raised in previously used oak barrels.
