100% Pinot Noir
Vineyards & Viticulture
From old vines mainly in Aÿ and a bit in Mareuil-sur-Aÿ. The vineyards are worked in part by plough and then the ground is covered with bark in order to stop erosion and prevent weeds from sprouting. Herbicides are avoided at all costs.
Harvest & Vinification
This is a saignée of Pinot Noir made exclusively of free-run juice from a two-day maceration. The wine undergoes malolactic and ages in stainless steel tanks. Dosage 5g/L. Neither fined or filtered. Reserve wines are not used to adjust the blend of the non vintage wines, therefore all are from a single vintage but not marked as such since they do not rest on lees for the three-year mandatory minimum period.
