The Cras Rouge Monopole is a small selection of the best parcels of Pinot Noir vinified 100% whole cluster and aged for 18 months in barrel. During the reign of the Ducs de Bourgogne, the wines from Plombiers were valued more than those of Gevrey or Chambolle. With expressive, energetic wines like the Coteaux de Dijon Pinot Noir, Marc Soyard is showing that this near-forgotten terroir overlooking Dijon can still deliver incredibly delicious and memorable wines. The owl is the symbol of the city of Dijon. The famous chouette is sculpted into the chapel of Notre-Dame de Dijon. Local legend says that if you rub the owl with your left hand while making a wish it will come true.
