Dennis Carré was not born into a wine family but knew from the time he was a teenager that he wanted to be a winemaker. In 1975, he took his savings and rented a parcel of vines, later producing three barrels of Passetoutgrain. While financing his dreams working in a garage at night, his days were spent in the vines and small winery he began constructing in the late seventies in Meloisey in the Hautes Côtes de Beaune. Nearly forty years later, the old family house is now surrounded by a modern winery and underground aging cellars. Their 13 hectares of vines are spread over 8 appellations from which they produce 12 wines.
The Hautes Côtes de Beaune rouge is a brilliant Pinot Noir. It is sourced from a high elevation vineyard in the Hautes Côtes above Pommard. The vineyard is called Les Perrieres. The vines there are old and are rooted in super rocky, mineral soil. The result is a Pinot of uncommon elegance with fruit so delicious and fresh it is almost crunchy. Serve in a big glass to best capture the wild-berry aromatic complexity that never really seems to stop changing.
