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 for many years under the legendary Philippe Pacalet.
Jonathan established Vin Noé in 2016, based out of an 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 hands-off approach in the cellar, using wild yeast fermentations, zero sulphur additions and gently transferring wines with gravity without the use of a pump.
