PRODUCER

Jaboulet-Vercherre

Jaboulet-Vercherre is a negociant and a domaine with roots in the Rhone Valley, where it was established in the early 19th century. It still produces Chateauneuf-du-Pape and other Rhones in the Rhone Valley. However in 1920 the firm opened cellars in Beaune, Burgundy, and now has more than 30 acres of vineyards in Burgundy. The domaine produces Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in Burgundy. Its best-known wines are Pommard-Clos de la Commaraine and Beaune-Clos de L’Ecu. Jaboulet-Vercherre makes nearly 750,000 cases of wine annually as a negociant.

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits Villages, Gevrey-Chambertin

Côte de Nuits is the northern part of the Côte d’Or and it includes the most famous vineyards and wine communes in the world. There are more Grand Cru appellations in the Côte de Nuits than anywhere else in Burgundy. Of the fourteen communes, or villages in the Côte de Nuits, six produce Grand Cru wines. They are Gevrey-Chambertin, Morey-St.-Denis, Chambolle-Musigny, Vougeot, Flagey-Échezeaux and Vosne-Romanee. Some of the vineyards within the Côte de Nuits are tiny, which adds to their prestige. The fabled Grand Cru vineyard La Romanee is barely two square acres. Altogether there are twenty-four Grand Cru vineyards. The region takes its name from the village of Nuits-Saint-Georges. Côtes de Nuits produces mostly reds from Pinot Noir, and the wines have been in demand for centuries. During the 18th century King Louis XIV’s physician recommended that for his health the king only drink wines from Nuits-Saint-Georges. Like most of Burgundy, the soils of the Côte de Nuit can vary greatly from one vineyard to another, though most are a base soil of limestone mixed with clay, gravel and sand.

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
