2018 VDF 'En Pleine Nature'
100% Pinot Noir from Bugey. 40 year old vines grown on clay and limestone. 3 weeks whole bunch maceration, and then aged in old barrels for 9 months.
That perfume – boom! So explosive again. So free with no sulfites! Crushed berries over rocks, so fragrant! Hints of chocolate and carob in the background. A little savoury twist lingers. Ample texture. Later on the perfume is so mystical. Like an exotic incense that you’ve never smelt. Very faint lavender notes too. It’s very light and fragrant, but has the depth in the mid-palate. Layers of flavours and gently creamy textures. I could say sandy or grainy but it’s more mixed that that. This won't last long, so delicious!
