Many producers are born into a wine domaine: their parents, grandparents and great grandparents probably grew grapes. They’re the latest in the composite work of many generations with similar goals. Some producers, however, begin with nothing. Such was the case of Denis Carré. In 1975, he took his savings and rented a parcel of vines, financing his dreams working in a garage at night, Nearly 40 years later, domaine is 13 hectares of vines are spread over 8 appellations. This ruby red Pinot Noir is medium-bodied and versatile. Aged in tank and used oak barrels, the wine has a lovely ruby red color and aromas of cherry and black cherry, black raspberry, and woodsy herbs. An excellent companion for roast chicken or creamy mushroom risotto.
