Madame Veuve Point Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2019
"This Pinot is very lively on the palate, structured, supple and round."
"With a deep ruby color, this wine reveals a bouquet that opens with a basket of small red and black fruits (strawberry, cherry, blackcurrant, blueberry), evolving on cooked prune, on peppery nuances, leather and undergrowth. This Pinot is very lively on the palate, structured, supple and round, with volume and flesh. It is the ideal partner for meat pies, poultry or even a stew. Its natural elegance predisposes it to pairing with a piece of roast veal, rare red meats and cheese recipes (soufflé, tartiflette, etc.). Serving temperature: 14 to 16 ° C."
Madame Veuve Point is named for Jeanne Marie Point, née Lassarat. In 1895, she married vigneron Claude Point, and joined him in his vineyards in Solutré-Pouilly in the Maconnais region of Burgundy. When Claude died in 1903, the newly widowed Jeanne Marie decided that she would work the vineyards in his place, and continue the winemaking legacy that she and Claude had begun. Her Pouilly-Fuissé won the Grand Prize at the Saint Louis World's Fair in the USA in 1904.
Today, the winery is named in her honour, as a pioneering woman in wine. Her great-great-granddaughter, Géraldine Point, has picked up the torch and now makes wine from over 30 of the most famous Villages in Burgundy. Each has been selected for its quality and true representation of the terroir.
