Appellation: Sancerre A.C., Loire
A selection of very old vines of Pinot Noir planted on Flinty clay soil, with southwest exposure. The alcoholic fermentation is made in stainless steel thermo regulated tanks (10 to 14 days) between 26 and 32 °C. During this time, grapes are roded and the juice raised twice a day to break the hat of marc and extract the best colours and the most ripe tannins. After a malolactic fermentation, the wine is aged during 6 months in oak barrels.

Winery Tasting Notes
Deep ruby colours
This wine develops aromas of very ripe mature red fruits (Morella cherries, prunes,…) and vanilla.
Its great concentration (old vines with small yield) shows a pleasant structure assuring a very promising future. In ideal conditions, this wine can see the next decade …. and even more.
This Pinot Noir is very powerful; its development in mouth is remarkable. He will thus ask for a sophisticated cooking and why not a little spiced on. It will accompany small Games or marinated red meats. Candied Quails in dried currants and rosemary juice, Rolled lamb and fried country ceps.
