A bit of History...
The Curot winery was established in the 80's by the sister of Éric Louis.
Composed of 12 hectares, 50% of the vines are located on the village of Vinon (south of Sancerre), which are famous for their grounds of limestone, clay and flint stone.
Nowadays, this is Éric Louis who takes care of the vines of Curot Winery and keep perpetuating the tradition and the unique taste of this wine.

 

Grape:
100% Pinot Noir

Terroir:
Soil with mainly limestone.

Vineyard work :
Reasoned culture, cover in grass, no grasskiller, disbudding, green harvest, work on the soils

Winemaking:
The grapes are sorted and de-stemmed.
Following a cold pre-fermentation maceration (6°C) to optimize the aromatic concentration, the wine starts 2 to 4 weeks of fermentation.
It is during this period -between 18 and 25 degrees – that the wine is cap-punched a number of times. We work to obtain a fleshy, structured product, which retains all its fruit flavours.
Then the wine spends 10 months in oak barrels from regional forests. There it does its malolactic fermentation that allows it to become rounded and mature.

Tasting:
Ruby red, clear and bright, It has a pinot nose with hints of violets and spice that makes it very pleasant. It is powerful and full of fruit in mouth and has good structure.

Wine & Food Pairing:
Often used as the wine throughout a meal, it is amazing with white meats and goat cheese.
