Single-varietal Pinot noir sourced from 25-year-old vines grown on silt over clay soils.
They wait patiently until the Pinot grapes achieve optimal ripeness. Hand picking allowed us to select the finest fruit. The crop then macerates for four days in small containers (open casks), partly as whole bunches. The wines are fermented at 20°C to extract maximum fruit flavour with daily punching of the cap in the same casks. Vatting lasts for one month then the wines are matured in casks (1/4 new) for 18 months
A wine with a ruby hue and dark purple highlights. Quite delightful nose brimming with fruit driven by black fruit coulis, blackberry, blackcurrant and strawberry jam notes. The palate is soft with a crunchy, juicy mouthfeel and very enjoyable & savoury fleshiness. The tannins are fine and silky with a nice bitterness.
