Sylvain Loichet Bourgogne Pinot Noir 'Le Président' Bio 2020

This 'entry-level' Bourgogne Rouge 'Le Président' shows how talented Sylvain Loichet is as a winemaker. It is a very expressive and attractive wine with aromas of cherry and plum and a lush 'berry and cream' flavor. Lots of fruit, there is much to enjoy here.

To achieve this result, Sylvain applies a simple recipe: manual harvesting, carefully handled grapes, minimal intervention, precise aging in used French oak barrels and bottling without fining or filtering. Sylvain's 100% Pinot Noir Bourgogne Rouge is a wonderful example of a "humble" appellation coming to life in the hands of a genius. Beautifully aromatic, with plums, dark cherries and black raspberry fruit. Finely structured and noticeably fresh. Expertly handled. A delight!

  • About Sylvain Loichet

    After completing his studies at l'Ecole de Beaune, Sylvain Loichet took over the 3.5 hectares of vineyards belonging to his grandparents in 2005. Until recently, the wine was produced in Comblanchien, but the cellar is now located in Chorey-Les-Beaune. From the start, he wanted to work only with organically grown grapes to best express the terroir of all the different Burgundy "appellations. He has succeeded wonderfully.

    The date of harvest is determined by the ripeness of the grapes. Sylvain looks for aromatic ripeness, as well as the grapes' potential in alcohol and their acidity, which are extremely important in making great wines that can age well. The grapes are harvested by hand to select only the best grapes. The grapes are sorted a second time in the cellar before being pressed (for white wines) and put into fermentation vats (for red wines).

    The fermentation of the wines takes place in oak barrels with natural yeast. The white wines are then aged for 18 months and the reds for 24. New oak is used for half of the Grands Crus and a third of the Premiers Crus. For the smaller appellations, he uses oak barrels that have been used 1 to 4 times before.
