This is the only wine in Burgundy which associates two grape-varieties: 1/3 Pinot noir and 2/3 Gamay; a very old tradition. Wines stay 15 months in cellar before being bottled. During this period, the wine undergoes a second fermentation named malolactic fermentation which allows it to stabilize its structure. The Bourgogne Passetoutgrains has a beautiful intense red color. The fruity aroma is fresh and not really tannin, but with a good sharpness It is a soft, light wine and because of the Gamay variety it is best when it is young. The small proportion of Pinot Noir gives the wine tannins, structure and finesse.
