Region: Burgundy, Cotes de Nuits
Grape: Pinot Noir
Viticulture: Biodynamic Farming / Natural Wine
Vinification: Hand harvested grapes are fermented as whole bunches without the addition of sulphur. Maturation took place in old oak barrels for a year followed by a year in stainless steel to rest and settle. Bottles with a very small amount of sulphur.
Youthful Burgundy full of ripe dark fruits, cherries and blackcurrants. Hints of spice and pepper on the palate followed by gentle smoke and tobacco. Delicate, well integrated tannins.
