The Roty family has been making wines dating all the way back to 1710. This is how deep and entangled the Roty family is with their vines and winemaking in the Côtes de Nuits. The Roty’s believe that great wines come from great terroir. They have organically farmed for over 20 years, and the wines they produce reflect the diligence with which they go about winemaking. This 2014 Pinot Noir is full bodied and rich, a classic result of the clay and limestone planting grounds for wines from Gevrey-Chambertin.
