Vins de Sancerre
The grapes were hand-picked and sorted in the vineyard before being brought to the winery in 40 kg crates. They were table-sorted at the winery and were completely destemmed. A belt was used to transfer the grapes to the tanks. Cold pre-fermentation maceration lasted 7 days and alcoholic fermentation took place under controlled temperatures for 7 days followed by post-fermentation maceration for 14 days. Regular punching of the cap and pumping over of the must. A belt was used for devatting. The grapes were then pressed very gently using a pneumatic press. Ageing: 40% in new oak, 30% in one-year-old barrels and 30 % in two-year-old barrels. Bottled in July 2008.
Visual : deep ruby, brilliant.
Nose : red fruit, strawberry and cherry.
Palate : elegant attack, presence of tannins, flavours of cherries in brandy. This wine reflects a succeeded pinot noir of Sancerre. Serve at a temperature of 14 to 15°C. A perfect match with grilled red meats, small feathered game.
