Grapes are collected manually, sorted out and then completely destemmed. Alcoholic fermentation lasts from 15 to 18 days in open tanks with regulated temperature. Grape skin is punched down twice per day to stimulate the process. After this period, wine is transferred to oak barrels to mature for a period of 12 to 18 months. 30 to 40% of used oak barrels are brand new. Malolactic fermentation is fully completed. Wine is bottled in traditional Burgundy bottles. Each cork is branded with the Wine estate and vintage year.
We can see a beautiful ruby, dark red robe with clear and purplish reflections. The elegant nose develops red fruits aromas (cherry, raspberry), with a light woody,smoked and liquorice note. In mouth, we find again fruity notes (blackcurrant, cherry, morello cherry). Mouth reveals ripe, elegant and velvety tannins, beautiful freshness, balance and suppleness. Wine shows a beautiful aromatic obstinacy. A very nice Pinot Noir.
