From young vines of Pinot Noir planted over pure limestone in Uchizy, facing east, some three hundred metres above sea level. The grapes were fermented as whole bunches for a fortnight in cuve, left to infuse without pigeage or remontage, before being pressed off to large foudres for one year of élevage. Bottled by hand directly from the casks, this cooler vintage has produced a wine of real finesse. Pale rose in colour, it is compact and elegant, with delicate notes of red berries, earth and minerals combining to beautiful effect. A wine where every little detail is in place.
