In accordance to our tradition and values of elegance and quality, the Pinot Noir grapes and juices from the South of France were selected on specific vineyards cultivated on clay and limestone soils along the Mediterranean coast.
Subjected to strong thermal amplitude, the grapes benefit from very favorable conditions to come tofull maturity and express all the richness of the variety.
Harvested by night at optimum maturity, in order to keep all the freshness and obtain nice colour and intensity aromas, the Pinot Noir Grapes were directly pressed at their arrival at the winery. Then, the must went through a static settling at low temperature (14-16C / 57-60F) for a gentle fermentation and conservation of the fine fruity aromas. Sowing of aromatic selected yeasts was then followed by a fermentation at 18C (64F) with micro-ventilation. Once the malolactic fermentation was complete, the wine was racked and aged on fine lies, which were regularly stirred (kept in suspension).
Very pleasant, on fresh red fruits flavours such as raspberry and strawberry combined to citrus notes (grapefruit, tangerine) and a little English candy.
Very elegant, well-structured and fresh wine offering a frank yet supple attack. The mouth is truly balanced and fulfilled by a perfect combination between a beautiful sense of refreshing and harmonious wine, where purity and fruitineess are perfectly balanced ending on persistent and acidulous notes.
