Tasting Notes

All from the 2014 vintage, this Rosé de Saignée, made entirely of Pinot Noir was macerated for 18 hours in tank before fermentation in 25% oak and the rest in tank. En tirage for 28 months. This is a wild Rosé, recalling Vincent Laval’s Rosé. It’s deep in color and its tone is darker, with broader red fruit character than the Solera wine, but with an intense and quite chalky minerality. It’s a wine for autumn rather than summer and wonderful tertiary notes emerge with time with flavors of cool weather and forest floors.
