The cuvée l'Equilibriste was initially created for a local circus festival around Dijon, thus the high wine "razor's edge" balancing act on the label. The red comes from the same Pinot Noir vines in Bessy that are used for the Coteaux de Dijon, but are vinified sans soufre and with a lighter touch to be ready for a spring bottling and immediate enjoyment.
