Tasting Note: Bright, deep ruby color. On the nose well ripened red and black fruits with a hint of chalkiness. Initial purity on the palate. The elegance of the fruit compliments rather than masks the tannins. Finishes with a chalky mineral mouthfeel.
Food Matching: Delicious with poultry, fish in tomato based sauces and Asian dishes.
Grape Variety: 100% Pinot Noir.
Climate: Mild climate. Soil: Shallow topsoil over limestone outcrop. Harvest: Manual.
Vinification: Hand-picked at optimum ripeness, the grapes are then sorted, 100% destemmed and put into vats. Fermentation, in contact with the skins, lasts between 20 and 25 days. After racking, pressing and settling, the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation before being aged between 14 and 18 months in barrel. The wine is then racked before being bottled, unfiltered. Elevage 100% in new oak barrels.
Ageing: 18 months in barrel (oak) for red wine.
Residual sugar: 0.4g/100ml.
