Overview

As Benoît Doussot has slowly increased his production, he has begun to separate the Pinot he farms into parcels with a southern exposition from those with a more northerly exposure. Boréal comes from his north-facing vineyards of Pinot Noir in the commune of Buxières-sur-Acre. These sites are far cooler than most vineyards farmed in the village, making precise and intensely mineral wines lashed with bright, crunchy berry flavors. Fermented and aged in French oak barrels before aging sur latte for 15 months, Les Semblables Boreal is disgorged and finished without any dosage.
