Serve at 16° C with grilled lamb, chicken tagine or mature cheeses.
The Pinot Noir is a fragile, demanding variety which is capable of producing extremely fine red wines.
It produces nicely rounded and fruity wines which should be opened when young. In more concentrated versions produced from low-yield vines, the wines gain in structure and aromatic complexity with sometimes velvety textures and great ageing potential.
This 100% Pinot Noir comes from vineyards in the region’s coolest areas set at altitude. It is a fruity wine offering notes of ripe cherry, wild raspberry and spices, as well as silky tannins and an elegant, balanced finish.
After the “green harvesting” in June, the grapes are picked in late September when perfectly ripe.
The average yield is 25 hectolitre per hectare.
The grapes are de-stemmed before being placed in vats for maceration that lasts 10 to 15 days. Pumping-over operations extract the best out of the skins prior to pressing.
The wine is partially matured in 225-litre barrels before being bottled.
