Vineyards and wine making, olive orchards and olive oil making, cattle and horse breeding all work together in complementary fashion, as do the egg-laying poultry flock and the organic vegetable gardens. This wine is 100% Pinot Noir (69% direct press, 31% . Fermented in stainless steel 21-30 days on fine lees. Matured in 100% stainless steel. 2020 vintage – “A very light pink salmon colored hue. The nose shows intense and delicate aromas of fresh lavender, citrus, mirabelle plum, and jasmine. On the palate, the floral and citrus notes return supported by an energetic and acidic backbone. This wine develops to a surprisingly dense mid-palate with a lot of texture that finishes with gentle layers of strawberry and plum fruit. It’s very focused, precise, and will develop well all summer long.” – Stéphane Vivier, Winemaker.
