Description

100% Pinot Noir from Burgundy.

Originally from California, Jon Purcell grew dissatisfied with the disconnect between winemakers and grape farmers, so he moved to Burgundy to become closer to the vines and live in rural France. After graduating from his wine studies at the famous wine school in Beaune, he worked for several famous Burgundian winemakers including Philippe Pacalet.

Jon Established Vin Noé in 2016, working out of the same cellar in Auxey-Duress as Chris Santini and Domaine Dandelion, sharing a press and other equipment. He initially bought organic fruit from Beaujolais, Macon and Rhone, though he has now taken over the vineyards of JJ Morel in Puligny-Montrachet and Saint Aubin. These vineyards are extremely old and low yielding and Jon manages them with an incredible attention to detail. He plows only with horses and does all the work manually. Farming is, of course, organic.

In the cellar, Jon is incredibly meticulous. He works completely without sulfites or a pump, all fermentations are natural, and the wines are aged on their lees in old, neutral barrels. Reds are done whole cluster in old wooden vats, but with longer macerations and deeper extractions than has become in vogue for natural wines. Jon employs hard punch downs and his wines are dark and deep, savoury and rich, with texture and backbone not often found in Beaujolais or Burgundy.
