Grape:

100% Pinot Noir

 

Terroir:

It comes from pinot noir vines planted on clay-limestone soils.
Many years ago, we chose to take the ambitious high road of ecological transition involving a reduction in the use of chemical products, the recovery of biodiversity, the preservation of the soil’s potential and the management of resources, particularly water. In 2019, our wine-estates has achieved HVE3 certification, a High Environmental Value farming certificate. We are now converting in organic practices by Ecorcert.

 

Winemaking : 

We choose to harvest the grapes at night in order to help to concentrate the aromas, the flavors and less oxidation of fruit.
A cold pre-fermented maceration of 72 hours at 6°C takes place and encourages the extraction of colours and tannins.
Afterwards, the wine ferments during 18 days from 18°C to 25° C.
The « pigeage » and « remontage » (pumping-over) are carried out twice daily in order to extract the colour, tannins, and intense aromas...
A portion of the wine is aged in stainless steel tanks and the other portion in oak barrels (from the local forests of Tronçais and Bertranges) for 9 months where it undergoes its malolactic fermentation.

 

Tasting:

This wine displays a charming red ruby colour, clear and bright.
Its nose is very typical of the pinot noir grape variety with notes of violet and spices. `
Its mouth is powerful, well structured and reminds small red berries. 

 

Wine & Food Pairing:

Often served as the main wine during a meal, the Sancerre red could be amazing with fish, white meats and charcuterie. This is a wine that will be as happy in picnic basket.
