Harvested in the first days of harvest, exclusively by hand, from clay and limestone vineyards in a dozen of the most favoured localities in and around Riquewihr. A cool and long growing season gives this unique dry wine great finesse and balanced intensity. The grapes are taken in small tubs to the winery, they are 100% destemmed and macerated for 6 to 7 days. After malolactic fermentation, the wine is matured in vats until it is bottled in early summer the following year. The bottles are then aged in our cellars until released for sale. The whole production of this wine is closed with DIAM the cork without the risk of cork taint.
Attractively young fresh pale ruby-red colour, like wild raspberry, red cherry and ripe morello, nicely bright yet hardly translucent. The bouquet is frank and easily approachable, with pleasant young fresh soft fruit aromas, bilberry, morello, raspberry, woodland mayflower and Virginia tobacco leaf, soft and harmonious. This same fine balance can be found on the palate, the wine is elegant and easy to drink, with just enough tannin to provide structure. It fills the mouth with flavour and has an agreeably refreshing aftertaste. A textbook example of a quality Pinot Noir, frank and engaging.
An easy drinking wine to enjoy with country food, sausage, ham, grilled meat, also smoked, grilled or poached fish, and with white meat.
