About
Albert Sounit Blanc de Noirs is a meticulously crafted dry sparkling wine, produced exclusively from Pinot Noir grapes, hailing from the prestigious vineyards of Burgundy, France. This Crémant de Bourgogne focuses on showcasing the depth and versatility of the Pinot Noir grape, presenting a sparkling wine that marries the robust flavors and structure characteristic of a red varietal with the elegance and finesse of a white. The dedication to a Blanc de Noirs style reflects Albert Sounit's commitment to exploring the nuanced expressions of Burgundy's terroir and the potential of its varietals in producing exceptional sparkling wines.
Producer
The founder of the winery, Albert Sounit, created it in the 1930s in the Château Jeunet wine estate, which is located in the commune of Riley in the Côte Chalonnaise appellation. Built at the end of the 19th century, the chateau can be proud of its 120 meter long underground cellars, where the winery's sparkling wines are kept. In 1993 Suni sold his company to the Danish Knud Kjellerup. In 1999, Grande Cuvée wine appeared for the first time on the market, which is produced only in the best harvest years, such as 2001, 2005 and 2006. In 2005, the winery acquired 7 hectares of vineyard in the Montagny appellation. For production needs, grapes are also purchased from the vineyards of Macon and Chatillon on the banks of the Seine.
Tasting notes

This Blanc de Noirs pairs wonderfully with heartier seafood dishes, such as salmon or tuna steaks, where its structure and berry flavors can complement the richness of the fish. It also makes an excellent accompaniment to light meats, such as roasted poultry or duck, where the wine’s depth and acidity cut through the fattiness of the dish, enhancing the flavors and providing a refined dining experience

Pairing

On the palate, Albert Sounit Blanc de Noirs delivers a complex and engaging array of flavors, with ripe red berries, a hint of cherry, and a touch of spice, beautifully balanced by a refreshing acidity and a fine, persistent mousse. The wine’s richness is complemented by subtle notes of brioche and a creamy texture, leading to a long, satisfying finish that showcases the elegance of the Pinot Noir.

Pinot Noir has very aromatic profile, very fresh acidity and low level of quaite soft tannins. The nature of Pinot Noir wine is its flavors of red berries and cherry (red sour cherries in lighter wines and cooked black cherries in bold examples). This wine matures very exating, developing notes of berry jam, violets, leather, moss and mushrooms.
Burgundy (Bourgogne) can be confusing because of the multiplicity of its appellations - all the small vineyards are divided between multiple producers so it can often be difficult to understand this diversity. However, it is the exact reason why the wines of Burgundy are considered to be the finest in the world. A common topic of discussion, when talking about Burgundy, is the concept of "terroir" - a unique combination of soil and climate conditions that affects the taste of wine in the appellations, making it unique to each village. Winemakers mainly use the capricious Pinot Noir and the classical Chardonnay to create true masterpieces, while Gamay and Aligote are used to make wines of a bit simpler style. Particular attention should be paid to the hierarchy of wines. First there are the regional and village wines, a step higher - the Premier Cru wines and the outstanding Grand Cru - at the top. Due the complex and inconsistent weather that can notably impact wine quality especially in bad harvest years, a very important factor here is the so called millesime - the harvest year of the grapes the particular wine is produced of, because each of these years has its own unique taste. Purchasing Burgundy wines is not easy because there are many details that should be taken into consideration - the class of the vineyard, the assessment of the manufacturer, the age of the vines, the quality of the wine as well as the millesime and, of course, the potential of ageing. The sellers play a big role here - they must be truly passionate about wine and able to offer only the best quality producers with a good reputation. That is exactly the way "Noble Wine" works!
