Humo Blanco Pinot Noir

In an ideal colluvial terroir slowly eroded by a granite massif of diorite (metamorphic rock) resulting from significant porosity, with deep and very aerated soils, our Pinot Noir is able to express its full elegance and concentration.

Description

Winemaking techniques

Bunch selection to remove plant debris. Vatting in concrete and stainless steel vats, once de-stemmed and crushed. Five days of cold maceration followed by fermentation with native yeast, at very quick speed. Maceration after fermentation for a relatively long period (total maceration of 25 to 30 days). Wine placed in barrels during malolactic fermentation, regular yeast stirring for 2-3 months, 10 months of maturation in second-fill barrels. Matured for 10 months in second-fill barrels.

Tasting notes

Pale red tending towards ruby, with hints of red.

On the nose, the aromatic intensity is carried by fresh strawberry and cherry aromas. A touch of clove mingles with the aromatic complexity of the whole.

On the palate, the wine is borne up by a supple, velvety structure and beautiful aromatic freshness, highlighting the Lolol Valley’s exceptional conditions for this grape variety.
