Domaine Derain, Le Ban

Regular price $50.00

Unit price per 

Grapes: Pinot Noir

Region: VDF (Burgundy, France)

Vintage: 2020

Viticulture: Biodynamic

Soils: Limestone + Clay

Yeasts: Native

Vinification: Two thirds (roughly) of the grapes are partially destemmed and then macerated for a little over a week. The remaining one third is directly pressed to create a white wine which is then blended with the resulting red from the maceration.

Aging: At the end of alcoholic fermentation, the wine is drawn and assembled with the press and aged in barrels in the cellar for 6 to 14 months depending on the vintage. All wines have only one racking before bottling.

Fining or Filtering: None

Notes from the Importer:  Dominique Derain started his career making wine barrels but decided, instead, to study winemaking in Beaune. In 1988 he and his wife Catherine purchased 5.5 hectares of vineyards in Saint-Aubin just south of Beaune and began tending the vines biodynamically and making their wines in a non-interventionist way as well.
