Domaine les Poëte
Odyssée - 2017 - Guillaume Sorbe
A very fresh nose of blackcurrant and cherries in brandy, with subtle herbaceous notes. Palate: beautiful, crisp fruit, tart and well structured, with light, luscious tannins. Huge ageing potential.

Pinot Noir farmed biodynamically (but not certified), planted on six plots (0.13 to 0.36 ha in size) totalling 1.2 ha, with yields of 15 to 30 hl/ha. Clay and limestone soils in St Romain, Chéry and Les Coignons, and clay and silt in Preuilly. Vines are high quality vine and Burgundian massal selections. Vinification: a pied de cuve made from the first plot harvested starts fermentations, with 50% whole bunches, daily pumping over, and 7 days of maceration. Pressing, blending of free run and press juices, and separate vinifications for each plot.
Guillaume Sorbe is part of a generation of winegrowers who work modestly, rigorously, and unrelentingly – and produce simply exceptional wines. After starting out as a cook, then a sommelier, he finally turned to winemaking, receiving his BTS degree in winemaking and viticulture in Beaune. This winegrower's son then founded his own estate in 2006, borrowing his great-grandmother's maiden name...All wines
