Introduction to French Wine In Burgundy From Domaine Vaudoisey Creusefond
Oct 21, 2020

The Vaudoisey-Creusefond estate is a family-owned (EARL) company operating around 9 ha in Pommard, on the Côte de Beaune. The surface is spread over several villages: Auxey-Duresses, Meursault, Volnay and Pommard.

This structure markets more than 40,000 bottles of wine a year. Sylvie, Henri, Alexandre and Laure Vaudoisey work in a traditional way and welcome you to their home.

Manual harvest of the grapes harvest. End of the vegetative cycle of the vine. Removing staples used to hold branches of the vine. Removal of dead or disease-affected vines and establishment of wooden milestones to protect future transplants. Organic fertilizer supply for certain plots. Their contributions are reasoned according to the vigor of the vine.

RED WINE is created in a 6 steps process: - reception of the destemmed harvest partially or totally; - alcoholic fermentation with native yeasts for 15 days in wooden vats; - cask and barrel aging for 15 to 18 months; - regular ouillage (= every 8 days); - tank bottling; - bottling process

 

Vaudoisey Creusefond Croix Blanche Pommard 2017

The real specialty of the house; a small parcel of 0.51 planted twenty years ago. The vineyard "Croix Blanche" is only classified as "Village", but those who own a plot always specify it on the label; moreover, the cru lies on the left side of the road that runs from Beaune to Pommard center, in a position adjacent to the "Grands Epenots".

Flattering flavors, ranging from wild to woody fruit, inherited from a fourteen-month-old barrel. It puts on finesse rather than on power. Tannins silky.

Ageing potential: This wine can age between 8 and 12 years.

Culinary Recommendation: To serve at 14 C - 16 C. Good match with Grilled Meat
