Olivier Decelle was made famous in the wine world for building one of the most visible and appreciated brands of Roussillon wines, Mas Amiel and also for bringing back life to Chateau Jean Faure, the neighbour to Cheval Blanc in St Emilion.
Pierre-Jean Villa, is the man who helped develop les Vins de Vienne’s – a boutique rhône négociant- reputation around the world. He’s also a young but gifted winemaker in the northern Rhône.
These two passionate winemakers are now teaming up in Bourgogne to produce wines from purchased grapes and from their own parcels from south to north of Bourgogne. They have purchased an abandonned cellar in Nuits Saint Georges and have just released their second vintage this spring.
High quality criterias are the basis of long-term partnerships with the vintners they buy grapes from and with Pierre-jean at the wheel of the cellar, one has the guarantee of clear, delicate,accessible yet complex wines. Soils are managed in organic or biodynamics.
Quantities available will be small, we’re talking boutique approach and small plot selections.
Bourgogne Chardonnay, 2013
Auxey-Duresses Blanc , 2013
The old vines of this parcel produce a limited number of highly concentrated shot grapes. Handpicked, the harvest is carefully pressed and naturally fermented in oak. In view of preserving as much as possible the minerality characterizing Decelle-Villa Meursault, we only use 30% new oak and do not stir the wine’s lees. After 14 months in our cellars, the different casks are blended for a couple of weeks, before being gravity-fed into bottles.
Decelle Villa Meursault is a bright straw color and expresses notes of cake, almond and crisp apple. Pure and distinct, the palate displays good structure. It pairs well with asparagus, top quality fish and even foie gras. This offering can be aged in the cellar for up to 10 years.
