Dry red wine from the Pinot Noir grape variety, Blackberry, blackcurrant and forest notes can be felt in the aroma. The taste is juicy, intense with dark berry and licorice notes. The tannins are soft and silky.
Producer
Symphorien DUFOULEUR founded his own wine house in 1848 and worked hard. In parallel with its development, DUFOULEUR acquired a number of outstanding vineyards on the Côte de Nuits, including a plot of land in Clos-Vougeot, which is still proudly owned by their family. Although the focus has always been on the marketed wine, in the 1930s Dufouleurs owned 15 hectares of vines, but they were split and some were sold. Today, Dufouleur Frères owns just over 5 hectares.

Pairing

Bourgogne “Le Fouleur” Pinot Noir pairs excellently with a variety of dishes. Its light body and subtle fruit notes go well with poultry like roast chicken, earthy flavors like mushroom risotto, and mild to medium cheeses such as Brie or Gruyère. It can also complement lighter meats like pork tenderloin and is surprisingly suitable for fatty fish like salmon. For the best experience, choose dishes with light, non-creamy sauces to match the delicate profile of the wine.

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!
