Vin de France «Pinot Noir» 2022

"Discover the Essence of Elegance with Our Vin de France Pinot Noir – A Natural Marvel from the Heart of Meursault, Auxey-Duresses, and Monthelie."

Detailed Description: This exquisite Pinot Noir hails from a unique parcel near the Moulin, nestled at the juncture of the renowned villages of Meursault, Auxey-Duresses, and Monthelie. Although it lies outside designated appellations, it benefits from an exceptional terroir.

Organic and Biodynamic Vineyard Practices: The vines, planted with high-quality, old Pinot Noir clones, are nurtured through organic and biodynamic practices. This approach enhances soil vitality and includes hands-on techniques such as soil cultivation and winter grassing, all without chemical inputs.

Minimal Intervention in the Winery: The winemaking process is defined by its minimal intervention philosophy. Grapes are harvested by hand and meticulously sorted. Fermentation is a slow, careful process lasting 15 to 20 days in stainless steel tanks, using native yeasts and whole bunches. Daily pumping over aids in naturally stabilizing color and aromas, a process finely tuned by monitoring fermentation temperatures.

Natural Winemaking Techniques: This Pinot Noir is a testament to natural winemaking. It's free from sulfur and other additives, with only a slight sulfite addition before bottling. The wine is neither fined nor filtered, preserving its purest expression.
