"Perfect balance of smoky, toasty oak and ripe red fruits. Red plums, wild raspberries and red cherries on the nose - fresh fruits, nothing confected. High acidity with great tension and texture. This is a lot like a top Oregon or German Pinot Noir. Red rose and crushed violets on the palate's finish. Lovely! Shows great ageing potential."

After spending twelve months in old French oak, this profound Pinot Noir is blended and bottled without any filtration. This is a Pinot Noir that will benefit from a few years keeping because of its structure. Its style is based on respecting and loving the place it comes from. We want to preserve the precision and the freshness of the fruit. We want to express correctly the soil and the micro-climate it comes from.
Production: 222 cases
