The Dufouleur family have been merchants since 1596, but it was very recently that the new generation represented by Yvan & Yann decided to start distributing the family estate wines. Yann looks after the export markets; Yvan does the winemaking. The 33 hectares of vineyards extend from Fixin to Santenay and include exclusive ownership of Fixin Clos du Chapitre Premier Cru.
The Nuits-Saint-Georges appellation is located in the southern part of the Côte de Nuits. The Domaine Dufouleur vineyards are farmed using sustainable farming methods, known as "la lutte raisonnée". The average age of the vines is approximately 35 years old. These vines are grown in limestone based soils and produce a yield of 55 hectolitres per hectare. Two annual tillings and a light weeding take place between the vines.
The grapes were hand picked and manually sorted in the vineyards. They then underwent a cold maceration for one week, followed by traditional vinification. The wine was matured for 12 months in oak casks, of which one third were new.
A perfumed Pinot Noir with sweet cherry fruit aromas and hints of violets on the nose. This wine displays an attractive purity of complex fruit flavours combined with elegance and finely grained tannins.
The perfect choice with grilled red meats, rich game dishes or a selection of cheeses.
