Lucien Muzard Bourgogne – French red wine

The Muzard Family has been making wine in the Santenay Appellation for nine generations – Today, Lucien Muzard and his two sons (Herve and Claude) cultivate 22 hectares of vines.

Thanks to some of the best positioned vineyards in the village of Santenay, they are producing wines of a very high quality. The family has managed to keep to traditional methods at the same time as instituting new technology. The aging of the wines is done in oak barrels but never more than 35% new (depending on the character of the vintage).

Their philosophy is simple: “Lots of care and good work in the vineyard (gentle ploughing, no herbicide, no pesticide, low yield, green harvest, hand harvest etc…) and in the “chais” (winery) – let the fruit do the talking!

Grape variety: Pinot Noir. Average of the vines: 55 years old. Soil: Clay-marl-chalk.
Maturation: 12 months in oak barrels (30% new). 750 cases made per year.
“Nice and elegant fruit. Balanced with a soft structure. To be drunk while young.”
