    Les Bressandes

  • History

    It is said that the plot, formerly an old quarry filled in and planted with vines, was given the name by 3 spinsters from the Bresse region; however, it is more likely that the name originates from "broussailles" (brushwood) or "broisse" in old French vernacular.

The wine

  • Description

    100% Pinot Noir from handpicked grapes and raised in oak casks.

  • Taste

    It is forceful on the nose combining aromas of violets and black fruit and a delicately toasted sensation; at the start in the mouth it is full and rich, followed by deep fruitiness and then a slight saline finish.

  • Serving temperature

    15/16°C. It is recommended to decante recent vintages so as to enhance the aroma.

The vintage

  • 2022: a year of relief for winemakers. The first buds came out earlier in March due to the mild weather, and thankfully the spring frost from April 9 and 10 did not cause any damage to the buds. Spring was hot and dry, making 2022 wines what we would call a premature vintage. By the end of June, the lack of rain started to be a concern. This was shortly followed by heavy rain showers, which despite some localised hail, generated just about enough water for the rest of the summer. The heatwave put the vines under strain but the drought was less damaging than in 2020, which allowed us to harvest grapes in perfect condition. Sunshine also comes through the 2022 red vintage, with more delicate flavours than the 2020 Pinot noirs. The wines were made with little wilting on the grapes and an optimal phenolic maturation process. The phenolic composites and aromas are subtle and delicate, nurturing elegant red wines.
