2020 AOC Coteaux Champenois 'Chamery Rouge'
Certified organic Chamery Premier Cru fruit - 100% Pinot Noir. 50% de-stemmed by hand, then the grapes were macerated for 3 weeks. This version was aged in old 400L barrels for 11 months. Not fined or filtered, and zero sulfites added at any stage. 11.5% alc.
Super bright and expressive on the nose. Lifted aromas of red fruits and berries, with s subtle savoury twist. To taste it is supple, with perfectly ripe fruit, fine tannin, length for days, and a nice savoury edge. So silky in the mouth. Linear, with a mineral undertone. Good grip, but it is very fine and gives a great sense of tension. Crunchy dark red apple and gently tart cherry. Straight rather than textural. Still young, but very good now. Love the tension. Great mid palate and long finish. Fine and elegant, an outstanding expression of Pinot Noir. Burgundy lovers take note.
