Grape: Pinot Noir
Tasting Notes: Raspberry, Spice, Earth, Cranberry
Domaine Billard has approximately 12.5 hectares of vineyards in different appellations throughout the Cotes de Beaune. The domaine passed from father to son recently and Jerome Billard has brought a new philosophy to his family domaine. Farming is done with respect for nature and follows the principles of organic farming.
Saint Romain is a small appellation that is deserving of more attention. The Billard La Perriere is a classic, elegant red Burgundy that has super light body, very crisp acidity, and smooth tannins. The frsh palate delivers flavors of cranberry, cherry, pomegranate and raspberry alongside a more savoury edge of menthol, sage, black pepper, and eucalyptus with accents of coffee, cocoa, and sweet spice. Pairs well with oysters or duck.
