Château Bon Baron

A spirit of perseverance: that’s probably what best characterizes Jeanette van der Steen and her husband, Piotr, who planted their first vines in 2003 for private use and today own over 17 hectares, 15 of which are in a single block on the banks of the Meuse river. These two economists, who came from the Netherlands to live in the countryside in Wallonia, have built up one of the most renowned vineyards in Belgium.

Célébration

This cuvée is the successor to the estate's classic "Blanc de Noirs", but its amber colour makes it a wine apart. The Pinot Noir is harvested at the end of September-early October, with only a few bunches per vine (the rest will be picked later for the traditional Pinot Noir cuvée). The berries are directly pressed and the juice is clarified (débourbage) with fermentation at 13°C. Alcoholic fermentation is sometimes followed by a partial malolactic fermentation to bring more roundness to the wine. The wine is matured in stainless steel vats for about a year.

    Beautiful amber colour.

    Nose of red fruits with a smoky touch.

   Ample, fleshy, medium intensity on the palate. Impression of biting into wild strawberries and raspberries. 

   Drink as an aperitif or with a red fruit dessert. Asian cuisine is also daring.

   8-10 °C
