BOURGOGNE PINOT NOIR 2011
Appellation : Appellation Bourgogne Contrôlée
Grape Variety : 100% Pinot Noir
Alcohol : 12.5% alc.vol.
Winemaking : The grapes are hand-picked, 100% de-stemmed and placed in vats. After a prefermentary cold maceration, the alcoholic fermentation begins. Punching of the cap is carried out during this fermentation twice a day. The wine is then raised in oak barrels for 18 months (with 20 to 30% new oak). It is racked up to three times during this period. The wine is bottled after fining and without being filtered to ensure all the aromas express themselves fully.
Tasting Notes : A beautiful red garnet colour. The nose is very pleasant with aromas of blackberries and redcurrants. The attack is fruity and we appreciate the volume on the palate.
Serving Suggestions : Feathered Game, Roast Beef, Cheeses.
Ageing Potential : We can already begin to appreciate it after 2 or 3 years in the cellar, but can let it age
Volume : 750 ml
