TASTING NOTES

The 2016 crop was low in quantity but its quality provides a nice surprise. The mature grapes gave deep ruby-colouRED WINE displaying notes of black fruit mingled with hints of violet and spices. The palate is round and generous. The wines are typical of their terroir.

DESCRIPTION

Vinification

Maceration:
Maceration and vinification take 2 to 3 weeks

Maceration and fermentation temperatures under total controlJoseph Drouhin seeks total control of the process of extraction; extraction gives colour and substance to a wine but should never be detrimental to its finesse and typical character.
"Pigeage" (punching down of the cap during fermentation): once a day until half of fermentation is done; one pumping over (remontage) per day till the end of the fermentation.
Pressing: separation of free run juice from pressed juice.
Ageing
Type: in barrels (20% in new oak)
Length: 14 to 18 months.
Origin of the wood: French oak forests.
Weathering of the wood: Joseph Drouhin insists on total control of the weathering for a period of 3 years, one of the contributing elements to the elegance of the wine.
Follow-up: barrel by barrel.
