Rêve Américain, Vin Noé
Burgundian micro-domaine and estate Vin Noé is the project of young Californian winemaker Jonathan Purcell. After graduating from his studies in Beaune, Jonathan built an impressive resume working as a tractor operator at Domaine de Montille and also for many years under the legendary Philippe Pacalet.
Jonathan established Vin Noé in 2016, based out of a 100-year old cuverie in Auxey-Duresses. Wines are produced using purchased grapes from the Mâcon, Beaujolais, and more recently from leased sites in Puligny-Montrachet and Saint Aubin. Jonathan takes a handsoff approach in the cellar, using wild yeast fermentation, zero sulphur additions and gently transferring wines without the use of a pump. Inspired by his work at Pacalet, Jonathan often opts for longer macerations with whole clusters, resulting in wines with deep and complex aromatics.
Rêve Américain is from three different plots in Pommard. 50% from Les Noizons (70-year-old vines), 25% from La Croix Blanche (90-year-old vines), and 25% from Le Poisot (50-year-old vines).
