This Pinot is made 40+ year old vines grown in red clay and chalk soil. The vineyards sit at 300-400m altitude, the highest elevation vines in Maranges. This wine is 15% whole cluster so it is bright with red fruit and secondary floral notes. The structure is delicate and feminine. A beautiful wine!
This elusive and delicate light-bodied grape is a winegrowers dream, but can be difficult to achieve. Stubborn, yet flirtatious, Pinot Noir is tantalizing creating a beautiful dance between the grape and the winemaker. The resulting light red wine can be nothing short of spectacular. Loved for its red fruit and spicy characteristics, its also a great food partner.
Look for notable regions including Burgundy, France, Central Coast or Sonoma in CA, Willamette Valley in Oregon, and Pfalz or Baden in Germany as well as many other regions around the world in New Zealand, Australia, Chile, and Argentina.
