Winemaker Notes

The color is deep.  The nose is dominated by notes of red fruit and toasty aromas with a touch of cooked fruit and kirsch.The palate is a little tight, concentrated with fruit flavors and fine grainy tannins. A very promising, well-balanced wine.

 

Lou Dumont, located in Gevrey Chambertin, was established in 2000 by Japanese  sommelier and oenologist Koji Nakada and his wife Jae Hwa Park and in 2012 purchased their first parcels of land in Burgundy: no small feat for a non-native Burgundian. The name Lou Dumont is a combination of their goddaughter’s name, Lou, and the French for mountain, paying homage to the areas in Japan and Korea where Koji and Jae Hwa grew up. The Kanji symbol on the label—sky, earth and man, refer to the basic elements which make wine possible and the concept of terroir. Koji’s goal is to produce pure, honest, regionally correct Burgundy from organically farmed grapes and with minimal manipulation. 

 

Koji takes a minimal approach to his wines, limiting pump overs and punch downs. He vinifies with natural yeasts and adds low doses of sulfites during vinification and a little at bottling--no more than 30 grams/liter for reds and 50-60 grams/liter for whites.
