$128.34 / case(12)
Vineyard notes: from the coolest area (limoux) of the south of france influenced by the fact that it is: -situated at the foothill of tghe pyrenees rising to 400 meters above sea level -sea breezes both from the mediterran and artlantic ocean strong viticulture control: starting with defined clone selection aimed at obtaining low yields good canopy management helping produce ripeness. The rows are grassed diown to avoid excessive vigour. In tourist terms limoux is considered the tuscany of the south of france. Winemaking notes: made in a very burgundian manner. The whole bunches went through a period of vold soak. Fermentation on skins lasted 2 weeks prior to pressing. There was burgundian-style manual punch-dowb to break up the cap and maximise colour. Very little press wine was used. Tasting notes: a very distinctive and immediately enjoyable pinot noir this is a very juicy raspberryrish cherryish wine with hints of strawberry and oak and a refreshing note of pepper. Food
