Tango Atlantico - 2020 - Noëlla Morantin - Magnum
One of Noëlla’s more complex wines... A nose with notes of red fruits, cocoa, cinnamon, prune. On the palate: this is some serious juice, velvety, round, smooth with beautiful soft tannins. Extremely luscious!

A blend of 60% Côt and 40% Cabernet Franc from vines around 40 years old, farmed biodynamically and planted on flinty clay soils in Pouillé. Harvested by hand at maturity at two different times, thus the two grape varieties are vinified separately. The Cabernet is fully destemmed, and the Côt ferments with about half of whole bunches. Blending after fermentation, and then maturation for almost two years in barrels, without new oak. Bottled at the Estate without fining or filtration, just a micro-dose of sulfites.
Noëlla Morantin decided to plunge into a new career at the age of 28. Dropping everything, she enrolled in a viticulture and oenology programme, which soon led to a series of internships with such quality names as Agnès and René Mosse in Anjou, and Philippe Pacalet in Burgundy… Her growing CV would impress Junko Araï, a Japanese importer who also owned vines in France happened to be looking...All wines
