From young vines of Pinot Noir planted over pure limestone in Uchizy. Exposed east, the vines are planted at over 300 metres above sea level. This was fermented as whole bunches for ten days in cuve with no pigeage or remontage, before being pressed off to 1200 litre foudre for fifteen months of élevage. Bottled by hand directly from the casks, this warmer vintage offers an explosion of black fruits, flowers and spice. We have a handful of magnums available too.
