The 2015 growing season was a test of good site selection, and our vineyard team did a wonderful job in challenging conditions - the summer was cooler than the previous year, particularly in August which is the crucial month for veraison and the start of the ripening season. The pinots were super-ripe with wonderful flavours, good acidity levels and deep colour.
The Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes were hand-harvested and whole-bunch pressed, with approximately 12% of the blend being fermented in old white Burgundy barrels, and partial malolactic fermentation took place in order to soften the wine’s natural acidity. This blend is completed with 2% of Pinot Précoce (having been vinified as a still red wine), giving this Rosé extra colour, body and flavour. The wine undergoes second fermentation in bottle and ageing on its lees for 60 months (or 5 years) before disgorging with 9g/L dosage
