CUVÉE :
Cumières Rouge traditionnel

TERROIR :
Clay and lime, with fragments of flint
Selection of very early-ripening plots above Cumières
Average age of the vines: 45 years

BLEND :
Blend of 3 or 4 years
100% Pinot Noir

FORMATS :
Half-bottle and bottle

WINEMAKING :

Harvested and rigorously sorted by hand. Maceration and winemaking in an open oak vat with immersed cap. Matured for 10 months in demi-muid casks and barrels before aging in stainless steel vats, in the cellar at a constant temperature. Malolactic fermentation in barrels; no fining, no filtering.

TASTING :

Colour: brilliant, deep red. The nose is typical of the Pinot Noirs of the Terroir of Cumieres with some morello cherry (griotte) coming through.
In the mouth a smooth balance is formed between red fruits and silky, delicate tannins.

PAIRING :

The delicate structure of this Cumières Rouge makes it ideal to accompany white meats (roast veal, guinea fowl…). When served at a temperature of 12° C, it goes surprisingly well with some fish dishes, such as turbot with its jus.
