Cherry red in aspect with a seductively fruity nose packed with cherries, redcurrant and spice. In the mouth it is pure, fresh and clean with notes of citrus and red fruit and refined tannins whose structure offer this wine exceptional persistence. A superb Pinot Noir with great style, excellent balance and immense personality in 2017, for this northern grape variety in a southern territory.
IGP Pays d’Oc
100% Pinot Noir
Clay-limestone with 20 % ferrous red, white and grey clay. Situated in the most continental part of the Languedoc Roussillon, 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. Three weeks in tank. Malolactic fermentation happens after settling in concrete tank.
Five months in concrete tank before bottling. Light filtration.
