Tasting notes

Gorgeous intense red in colour. The nose is extremely pure with predominant aromas of wild cherry and red stone fruit, followed by warmer scents of clafoutis, vanilla and crème brûlée that evolve toward more roasted notes reminiscent of dark chocolate. The palate is extremely elegant and pure, long and silky, continuing on a note of refreshing acidity with well-integrated chalky tannins to finish with a slightly saline impression. A hint of almond and a touch of liquorice complement this magnificent example of all that the Pinot Noir the grape can express when grown in stony soil.

Vinification and aging

The grapes are handpicked and all the entire harvest is destemmed. The grapes are transferred to tanks where they undergo traditional vinification that lasts approximately two weeks with regular punch-down, especially at the end of fermentation. The wine is then aged in barrels for 15 months with a proportion of 1/3 new oak.

Terroir

This 4-hectare climat is located just south of the village, at the very top of the slope. It benefits from east-northeastern exposure and very stony, shallow soil that is well drained to lend the wine freshness and concentration. Its high altitude also contributes to the wine’s freshness.
