Description

This wine is the fruit of a plot where 11 heirloom grape varieties which existed before the introduction of AOC, in the time of our grandfather Léandre, have been companion planted: Trousseau, Poulsard, Burgundy Pinot Noir, Jura Pinot Noir, Pinotin, Gamay Noir, Gamay Teinturier, Gamay Blanc, Petit Béclan, Argan and Enfariné. Each variety confers its particular qualities on the harmonious blend reminiscent of older wines. Yield of about 25Hl/Ha (almost 2 tons per acre) to ensure the wine is naturally balanced.

All the grapes are vatted together for 1 month (a lunar cycle) with indigenous yeasts, no chaptalisation, nor any oenological additive. The grapes are then destemmed without pumping the wine, which is subsequently matured in an egg-shaped tank, without any addition of SO2, for 10 months. The wine is bottled without any prior filtration, on a gravity-fed bottling line, on a fruit day according to the lunar calendar, and still no S02is added. The bottles are stopped with natural, fire-branded corks.

Dark cherry-red colour, complex aromas of red fruits, against a background of woody undergrowth. Impressively powerful in the mouth with a fruity and tannic finish. Serve at 16° C with beef, pâtés or cheese. Producers Notes
