A 100% Pinot Noir cuvée, from 30-year-old vines grown in several parcels. Fruit of organic and biodynamic viticulture. Yield: 35 hl/ha. Vinification: as a rosé de saignée, its colour comes from a light maceration of the skins with the juice, followed by fermentation and maturation in vats. Only a light dose of sulphites is added at bottling.
Paul Fouassier, who earned his viticulture and oenology degree in 1998, worked in several leading Bordeaux châteaux (Pavie and Angelus among others) before returning to his large family estate in 2001. The estate holds 60 hectares, 50 ha of Sauvignon and 10 ha of Pinot, which he manages with his cousin Benoît. The duo represents the 10th generation, drawing the best from the rigour of Benoît...All wines
