What importer Rosenthal Wine Merchant has to say about this wine...
Like its companion village white, this wine is a standard bearer for the Rollin domaine, making a statement about the charm and tenacity of the best wines of this region. The grapes are sourced from several plots, the two most important of which are in the “Les Pins”(on the northern side of the village) and “Les Noirets” (on the southern side of the village) vineyards. Most of the vines are old and the resulting wine has significant backbone but, like the truest wines of Pernand, the color is more often ruby-garnet rather than a deep red. Approximately 1800 bottles are allocated annually for our use in the USA.

While Burgundy offers many great trophies from top producers in well-known villages like Vosne Romanee and Puligny Montrachet, it also offers excellent values to anyone willing to explore beyond the famous names. Our collection– one of the largest in the U.S. – has plenty of both!
