  • Alpine Wines Grape Varieties: Pinot Noir

This wine is made from grapes grown in the Chablais Vaudois on gravel soils overlaying sandstone and limestone. Winemaking includes 8-10 days temperature controlled maceration, the first 2-3 days of which were at an elevated temperature of 28°C allowing maximum extraction of colour. The wine undergoes full malolactic fermentation prior to ageing for 12 months in oak barrels.

 

Ben says (October 2016): What a joy it is to find a wine that has been available for years but has hardly been touched! We do have a vast array of Pinot Noir on the website and it is easy to overlook some but this is a wine that deserves far more. It needs to be looked at and then enjoyed!

Beautiful Pinot Noir clarity means the sun shines through this ruby treasure beautifully. (As I taste, my table is in direct sunlight!) On the nose, everything that Pinot Noir should be and more - deep organic mulch, dark red berries, cinnamon and ginger, old leather bookmarks and a touch of tar. Gorgeous!

In the mouth, this is a dark masterpiece. Black cherry dominates but is upheld by rich chocolate and hints of burnt caramel. Delicious!

As you may have gathered, I love this wine.
