Grape Variety : Pinot Noir 100%.
Soil : This wine comes from a vineyard plot known as “La Louisonne” with caillotes soil. Located in the district of Bué en Sancerre, it only covers 44 acres. The vines are 40 years old on average.
Production technical data : Harvesting is carried out entirely by hand with a careful sorting of the grapes, a proportion of which will be de-stemmed in the winery. Fermentation takes place in open stainless steel vats for 3 weeks. Punching down operations are performed at the start of the maceration, with pumping over carried out throughout the alcoholic fermentation process. The wine is aged in new oak barrels and barrels previously used for 1 vintage, for a minimum of 10 months.
Tasting notes : This wine offers up ripe red fruit and black cherry aromas, against a backdrop of smooth oak. Big and rich on entry to the palate. The wine is well-balanced, with refined substance and a lovely long finish.
Food-wine pairings : With its smoothness and body, this wine will go perfectly with beef and small feathered game, such as pheasant with Chanterelle mushrooms.
Serve at a temperature : of 12/14°C.
