About

Product Description:

A totally harmonious style, velvety, elegant with a clear fruity character. This Pinot Noir flourishes in the cultivated vineya rds in the immediate vicinity of the winery at an elevation of 450 m. (1 ,400 ft.). These hills, a conglomerate of particular soils of loam, chalk, an d porphyry, and the very well-suited climate, form the ideal basis for produ cing a Pinot Noir of highest quality. The stems are immediately removed and the grapes ar e fermented at a constant temperature of 26 - 28° C ( 79 - 82° F) for about 7 days. The must is kept in contact with the skins t hrough circulation pumping and gentle pressure from below. We thus achieve ide al results with the coloring from the skins and emphasize the fruitiness of the wine. After two gentle rackings, 70% of this Pinot Noir is aged over 12 mo nths in large barrels of French oak, and the remainder is aged in small cask s of French oak (barriques) which are 2 - 3 years old. After blending, the wine is bottled and then aged an additional 6 months in the bottle before it goes on sale.
