VITICULTURE

Our entire vineyard is planted in the French tradition of high density and grown on our clay soils, this Pinot has naturally dense structure, dark fruit and savoury characters. We first started dry farming in 2010 and our soils have shown their exceptional potential by stressing the vines to just the right level in order to mature fine phenolic texture and enable the roots to explore deeper the soil, thereby getting the purest expression of our terroir.

WINEMAKING

After hand picking, bunches are sorted, 20% is kept as whole cluster while the rest is destemmed before being transferred under gravity into large French oak vats with no crushing (100% whole berries). After spending one week cold soaking the berries are fermented. We are looking for light extraction through gentle pump overs at the beginning of fermentation, alternating with plunging mid fermentation. Fermentation and post ferment maceration last for three weeks. The wine is then aged for 12 months in 100% French oak barrels, 20% of which is new oak
