Tasting Note

Pretty ruby-red colour with slight gleams of raspberry. Its nose opens with a highly delicate note of roasted coffee-beans, then develops a fine Pinot fragrance enhanced by sweet spices. Very elegant and refined on the palate, with a harmonious structure, fine integrated tannins, and a good length on the palate without being overpowering.

Online exclusive: this wine is available to buy on our website, and not in our Bath shop. If you wish to collect from our shop, simply order online and select the ‘free collection’ option at the checkout. Your wine will be available for you to collect within three business days.

Product Information

Winemaking

The grapes are picked manually into 12 kg harvesting crates and transported as quickly as possible to the winery, so as to avoid heat, rain, or bruising of the grapes. The contents of the cases then go through the sorting table, to get rid of leaves, green bunches (verjux), etc... According to the nature of the vintage, 85 to 100% of the harvest is destemned so as to avoid excessive bitterness from the stalks. Fermentation with maceration then goes on for 15 to 20 days in conical vats equipped with radiators for thermoregulation. This allows control of fermentation temperatures and has direct influence on aromas and colour extraction. Finally, gentle pressing makes way for the breeding and elegance of the wine. The wines are barrelled for 16 months, according to vintage, in oak casks, of which 20 to 40% are new, with a variety of origins of wood : Tronçais, Nevers, Vosges, Burgundy. Maturation in new casks brings the fragrances and tannin of the wood, and also, via its porosity, limited natural oxygenation helping favourable maturation of the wine. Whilst the wine is maturing, it is regularly stirred up (bâtonné), putting the lees back into suspension, bringing more fatness and roundness. Racking takes place prior to bottling, with no fining, just light filtration, preserving the natural riches of the appellation.

Food Recommendation

It will accompany red meats finely prepared and delicate cheeses. Serve at 17°C.

Press

  • Team leader Laurent Richet MS was among the judges who elevated this to Gold amid praise for its ‘deep, concentrated aromas of ripe black cherries and red plums, leading to a beautiful texture with savoury tannins and hints of spice and cedar’. Consultant Anja Breit was similarly impressed, describing ‘velvety, dark berry fruit and well-integrated oak, with a minty, herbal element and a juicy palate’ that meant it could ‘match strong meat dishes like beef bourguignon’.
