Domaine PETIT ROY Aloxe-Corton "Les Crapousuets" 2020
Wine Region: Burgundy - France
Grape: Pinot Noir
Tasting notes: This Aloxe Corton from Domaine Petit Roy is a powerful and elegant wine with a remarkable balance. Red and black fruits lead the dance with a very delicate floral and peppery side. A pretty Burgundy that should be opened in advance and which can be kept for a few years in the cellar.
About the winery: Born in China, Seiichi Saito grew up in Japan before going to France to learn the profession of winegrower. This Burgundy wine enthusiast then began training in oenology in Beaune, which enabled him to work for prestigious estates. After ten years in the Burgundy vineyard and a solid experience, Seiichi Saito decided to stand on his own feet and settled in Chorey lès Beaune; the Petit Roy estate was born in 2016. Today Seiichi Saito has a bit more of a hectare of vines on the Petit Roy estate, which he supplements with a little renting and purchase of perfectly selected grapes.
