Great introduction to Red Burgundy or for those who know Burgundy and enjoy decent wine at a decent price.
Run by brothers, Pierre-Yves and Olivier, Domaine Fichet has raised the quality level of their wines in recent years using a biodynamic approach in the vineyards. The terroir here is unique, a high content of white limestone in the chalk and clay. The microclimate brings extra humidity and morning fog. Now with a new winery and a general willingness to modernise their approach, the brothers' wines have continued to improve year after year. The Mâcon-Villages has a perfect balance of concentration, acidity and minerality and the Bourgougne Pinot Noir is beautifully fresh and light.
Tasting Note: Light to medium bodied with red cherries and strawberries with a slight savoury aspect.
