Winemaker: Gerard Raphet
, Côte de Nuits, Burgundy
Raphet wines are a Burgundy lover’s Burgundy. They are best appreciated by those familiar with the light color and earthy flavors of classic Burgundian Pinot Noir.
Raphet over decades has become the favorite Burgundy of customers and employees alike. They are wines that many feel “speak” especially and directly to them -- not dissimilar to a work of art.
The wine's aromas depart from the traditional Burgundian violets to suggest a potpourri of cinnamon, clove and incense. The wine’s light color and fine texture requires studied attention on behalf of the drinker.
