More about this wine

Composition is 90% Pinot Noir and 10% Pinot Meunier from Mareuil/Ay and Mutigny. It is made using saignée, like a red wine but the maceration is shorter, one or two days instead of the minimum 5 days for red wine production. Vinification is in stainless steel. It is only made in good years with very mature grapes from old vineyards and in small quantities. Fruity and intense, crisp and of course very dry with a long lingering finish. Stunning stuff, very moreish indeed.

Philippe Brun describes it thus:- "Rare! Made the authentic way, direct from harvest."
