A glimmering, cherry red wine. The nose is very fruity in this vintage with cherry, pomegranate and small red berries, as always, but also touches of leather and spices. The mouth is fresh and supple with harmonious and subtle Pinot Noir tannins paving the way to a beautifully taut finish. Classic notes of red fruit are complemented by lightly spicy notes in this wine that asserts its origins in a majestic expression of what this northern variety has to offer.
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.
