2019 Charmes Pinot Noir, Bussay
You are looking for a great Pinot Noir and you are not afraid to try something or somewhere new.
100% Pinot Noir
12 months of ageing in Hungarian oak barrels
2 years of ageing in stainless steel tanks.
The special microclimate created in the Mura valley and the clay-based soil allows figs and kaki to grow, but also ensures the making of an elegant and ripe Pinot Noir.
The grapes are spontaneously fermented in open tanks, with 10-14 days of skin contact. Afterwards they are moved to oak barrels to age for 12 months, and lastly an additional 2 years of ageing in stainless steel tanks.
The wine has cherry and blueberry notes, rounded with a hint of rosemary and thyme spices. The ageing of the wine adds notes of forest floor and leather. Great acidity and smooth tannis characterises the palate.
