Introducing the Bourgogne Pinot Noir Cuvee Leonel AOC Red 2019
Bourogne Rouge shows bright and fresh red and black fruit aromas. The palate has a soft structure with velvety tannins. Red Burgundy might be the world’s most flexible food wine. The wine’s high acidity, medium body, medium alcohol, and low tannins make it very food friendly.
About Laurent Cognard & Co
Laurent Cognard’s parents and grandparents sold the grapes from their small vineyard in Buxy to local co-operatives. Laurent began domaine bottling his family’s wines in 1977, returning each year for harvest, but also as a wine seller in Lyon and Paris. He returned to Buxy permanently in 2006 and today farms 26 acres of vines in the appellations of Montagny, Mercurey, and Pouilly-Loché. The specialty of the domaine is white wine made in a fresh and balanced style, though a small amount of Mercurey rouge is also produced. Laurent practices lutte raisonée (“reasoned stuggle”) and is converting to organic farming.
