WINEMAKING :

Harvested and rigorously sorted by hand. Maceration and winemaking in an open oak vat with immersed cap with pigeage and pumping over. Matured for 18-24 months in demi-muid casks and barrels before being aged in stainless steel vats in the cellar at a constant temperature. Malolactic fermentation in barrels; never fined or filtered.

TASTING :

Intense and deep ruby red colour, beautifully luminous. The scents picked up on the nose reveal the character of the Pinot noir: cherry, fresh grapes, blackberries, with a silky depth. The mouth opens up to reveal spicier notes of cinnamon, cloves and gingerbread the finishing on a younger register of fresh fruit.

PAIRING :

The assertive character of this 2015 will flourish as an accompaniment to red meats like a beef tenderloin sprinkled with wild mushrooms, not to forget game birds (pheasant, partridge). We advise decanting this Cumières Rouge about 2 hours before tasting it at 14-15ºC
