Claire Naudin La Plante Bourgogne Rouge is a natural red wine made by Claire Naudin with the Pinot Noir variety in the AOC Bourgogne, in Burgundy (France).
Claire Naudin is an intrepid winegrower who, having spent 6 months training in Australia, returned to the family estate in the town of Magny-lès-Villers in 1991 to set up her own wine project. The estate lies on the border between the Hautes Côtes de Beaune and the Hautes Côtes de Nuits with exceptional quality terroirs, and this is where she makes the most expressive natural wines.
Claire Naudin La Plante Bourgogne Rouge comes from a 0.7 hectare vineyard with soils mainly composed of clay and limestone. The vines have an average age of 35 years old and they are organically cultivated with certification, following the principles of biodynamic agriculture. The harvest is carried out manually at the optimum point of ripeness.
In the winery, the Claire Naudin La Plante Bourgogne Rouge grapes macerate in whole clusters in stainless steel tanks with native yeasts and without any pumping over. The wine is aged for 12 months in used French oak barrels. It is bottled without filtering or clarifying and with only a small amount of sulphur (40 ppm).
Claire Naudin La Plante Bourgogne Rouge is a surprisingly sensual Burgundy with an attractive combination of freshness, fragrance and smoothness.
