A 100% Pinot Noir cuvée, from a stony plateau over Buzançais limestone from the Lower Kimmeridgian. The fruit of organic and biodynamic viticulture. The vines are 15 years old. Yield: 30 hl/ha. Vinification: 5 weeks in vats, with punching of the cap, and maturation in oak barrels from the forests of Berry in central France. A light dose of sulphites 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
