The Story

Our low-vigour, stony, clay-rich soil, cool maritime mesoclimate, naturally tiny yields of under 35 hl/ha and our philosophy of expressing our terroir in our wines – give rise to a certain tightness, tannin line and elevated length to balance the richness and generosity of our Pinot noir.

Written Notes

Ruby red with almost violet hue. Nose with concentrated but closed character, releasing fruit only slowly, discreet spiciness in the background. On the palate fine acidity, very elegant, fine acidity, firm but ripe tannins, great structure and tension. Flavour is very persistent yet very elegant.
