Maitre Renard Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2007

This is another partnership between Nicholas Crampton (Foster’s will rue the day it set him free) and a Frenchman – this time, with Bernard Schurr. The idea is “to make a good value Burgundy with professional winemaking”. The grapes are grown in Marsannay and the Cotes de Nuits. It was matured in oak for eight months and is bottled under screwcap.

Background info on Bernard Schurr – provided by Nicholas Crampton.

Bernard Schurr’s first love was horses and he was a member of the French Equestrian team, attending the famed “Cadre Noir”. His love of all things equine is reflected in Maitre Renard – he sees many comparisons with the wily and elusive Fox of French lore and the difficulties in making Burgundy. Winemaking experience in Bordeaux and the South of France has provided Bernard with a broad perspective and he is approaching Burgundy from a different angle. Crafting innovative and affordable wines, he combines the strengths and characters of individual regions throughout Burgundy.
