The L’Atelier range is the natural extension of Benjamin Laroche’s offerings of Burgundian cuvées now expanding to the rest of the region and its famous red and white wines.
Artisan winemakers craft each cuvée of l’Atelier following state-of-the-art rules. From plot selection to uncompromising winemaking, they work thoroughly all year round to age wines representing the best of their terroirs.
L’Atelier expresses this passion for excellence. It combines in-depth vineyard knowledge and expertise with the heritage of the ancestral history of Burgundy.
Notes and Reviews
Its intense red garnet colour — like a black cherry — shines impressively. A still discreet but suave bouquet recalls hints of rose petals, peony, and violet red fruits with a liquorice nuance.
On the palate it is deep, intense, and finely tannic with a heady, velvety mixture of Bigarreaux cherries and raspberry confit, all with an ethereal vivacity that keeps lifting the wine throughout the tasting.
