Notes about product

Yields and Density : 58hl/hectares ; 8 800 vines/hectares The pinot noir vines are at least 20 years old and are mainly planted in argilo-siliceous soils (70%). The rest is planted in limestone soil. These vines are cultivated with maximum respect for the ecosystem and the environment.

Winemaking notes

Pellicular maceration - Softening of the grape skins with the must. The grapes are crushed and stripped from the stalks and then held for 4 days at 10º C. Alcoholic fermentation for 12 days in stainless steel vats that are thermo-regulated at a temperature of 15° C. Bottling is done in February.

Tasting notes

The legs appear as a beautiful red currant colour. Exceptionally fruity, very young and typically Sancerre, raspberry and peach. Very aromatic on a red fruit key. Full and round this wine attenuates gradually, expands promptly and is supported by a balanced tannic point. Powerful, it opens finally on fruity notes (blackcurrant, raspberry) and is prolonged with the taste of citrus fruits with a very beautiful aromatic persistence.
