Ruby-red robe. The nose is exuberantly fruity (small red fruits, cherry and blueberry). Round and mouth-filling, very well-balanced, with good freshness on the finish. The palate is dominated by red fruit, with a hint of blackcurrant and spice. A wine with good length, and the subtlety and poise typical of cool climate Pinot Noir.
IGP Pays d’Oc
100% Pinot Noir
Clay-limestone with 20 % ferrous red, white and grey clay. The soil is lightly sandy, so it has well aerated and drains well. The vineyard is at 250 metres altitude and there is a significant difference between daytime and nighttime temperatures, which is ideal for Pinot Noir.
The grapes are destemmed and sorted. Fermentation takes place at around 22°C. Punch down twice daily during alcoholic fermentation. Two weeks in tank. Malolactic fermentation happens after settling in concrete tank.
Five months in concrete tank before bottling. Light filtration.
