The “Héritages” range
“A wine to honour the savoir-faire of our ancestors: heritage perfected by modernity…”
VINEYARD LOCATION: Crézancy-en-Sancerre
TERROIR: An old vines selection, mainly from our famous “Terres Rouges”, composed of sand and iron-rich sandstone, as well as rocky limestone “Caillottes” soils.
GRAPE VARIETY: Pinot noir
VINIFICATION: The harvest is de-stemmed before alcoholic fermentation. Extraction is carefully managed during fermentation to obtain concentrated, well-balanced tannins and flavours. The wine is aged in oak barrels for around a year to enrich its concentration and weight.
Appearance: Beautiful glittering ruby red colour.
Nose: Concentrated aromas of wonderfully ripe red and black berry fruits, combined with hints of spice.
Palate: Tannins are ripe and velvety. The palate is at once fresh and extremely concentrated. A wine of great complexity and structure.
FOOD PAIRING SUGGESTIONS: Roasted white or red meats.
RECOMMENDED SERVING TEMPERATURE: 15°C to 16°C.
