A smooth and rounded Pinot with sweet, soft red-black fruit. Intense. Still building but very extremely drinkable.

All wines from this estate

Drinking Dates:
2021 to 2028
Cépagement:
100% Pinot Noir
Upbringing:
Grapes are destemmed, then put into vats at 12°C for 5 days to extract the primary aromas. Indigenous yeasts are used. During fermentation, the temperature is monitored so that it is around 26 °C, never more than 30°C. Smooth extraction respecting the grape variety, terroir and vintage. Fermentation lasts around 20 days.

The wine is aged for 15 months in French oak barrels (Allier and Vosges, 20% new) - the malolactic fermentation is performed in barrels with ageing on fine lees Lightly filtered before bottling on favourable lunar days.

ABV:
13%
Critic Reviews:
'Perfumed and with smoother fruit than the Clos Rousseau. Fully ripe and full of appeal. So sweet with a little inkiness on the end.' 16.5/20 (Jancis Robinson MW, jancisrobinson.com)

You must be aged 18 or over to purchase wine.
