    SERVING & TASTING

    With its youthful purplish hues, the wine looks almost Gamay- esque and that carries through in the generous fruit on the nose and palate. Pipe, dark fruits. rich cherry and blackcurrants burst over our tongues. There are hints of kirsch, delicate spice and pepper on the palate. developing into cool smoke. tobacco and leather on the finish. A touch of wild countryside and fresh earth in the aroma speak confidently of the wine‘s terroir and artisanal origins. The tannins are fine and friendly - very delicate on the palate - and the finish long and pleasurable.

    ABV: 13%

    LOCATION & TERROIR

    The grapes for Pinotte! were picked from 60 year old vines in Marsannay and Couchey. just north of Fixin. The viticulture is organic and biodynamic. working with a mix of sandy, clay and limestone soils.

    This is Sylvain Pataille‘s stomping ground so we knew the juice would be good – and it is. 2018 was a warm vintage and has resulted in amazing concentration, but the grapes were handpicked at just the right moment to keep a nice fresh acidity too.


    VINIFICATION

    The art of good natural winemaking is lightness of touch - not too little, not too much - and you really feel that in Pinotte! The juice was whole-bunch fermented (80%) and vinified without sulphur.

    Maceration was in the gentle infusion style without too much extraction. Just 32mg of total SO2 (dmg of free 502) at racking and bottling (vs the upper limit of l50mg) stabilise the wine while preserving the vibrant freshness of fruit. Maturation took place for a year in a mix of 228 and 350L old French oak, with a final year in stainless steel to relax and settle.
