This wine is a blend of the cool climate grape varieties Burdin 6055 and Chambourcin that came to upstate New York by 1960. Both varieties are fungus disease resistant, winter hardy, and productive. Burdin 6055 was bred before 1945 by Joanny Burdin of the Saône-et-Loire Department in Burgundy, France. Chambourcin was bred by Joannes Seyve by 1960 in an area just south of Lyon, France. This supple and aromatic red wine has hints strawberry jam and red raspberries, with floral elements of violets and licorice. It is a complex and layered wine with a clean and soft tannin finish. This is one of the first commercially produced Burdin wines in the United States. Burdin Noir has been an overlooked grape variety that we hope can emerge into prominence on the East Coast.
