It comes from Pinot Noir grapes grown on 0.23 hectares of vineyards owned by the Domaine Heresztyn Mazzini, located in Morey st Denis from vines planted in 1980. The grapes are transferred to steel containers where, with the use of indigenous yeasts only , alcoholic fermentation takes place following a cold pre-fermentation. The "Pigeage" are short and frequent depending on the year. The bunches are used between 70/100% entirely depending on the vintage. The wine is aged in wood barrels used for 60% for the duration of 18 months.
Working the vine
Since vintage 2016 we have chosen to convert our parcels of vines to organic agriculture and to work with conviction in biodynamic growing methods and plant-based treatments. The soils of all the parcels of the domain are worked sparingly so as to maintain their microbiological life systems. To improve the yield, once pruned our vines are de-budded and thinned early, by hand. We may choose a green harvest.
A great red wine made to be aged. Rich, complex, elegant... this wine has it all. Nuanced aromas of black fruits, spices, and a hint of mocha.
Wine in drink from 2022 to 2040.
Taste it at a temperature of 16 ° C with beef tenderloin.
