Enologist and nephew of Marcel Lapierre, Philippe Pacalet has been producing top-quality wines since 2001. The key to the success of his négociant business is his desire to best express the terroir, his meticulous vinifications, non-interventionist methods and his discerning use of minimal doses of sulphur. His extremely natural wines have stunning balance and for the most part, excellent aging potential.
About the cuvée
The Pinot Noir grapes in this cuvée are from forty-year-old vines grown on clay and limestone soils. At the domaine, yields are controlled and whole grape bunches are vinified without sulphur and aged in wooden barrels for 17 months. Its depth, power and great distinction give this wine an instant allure. It also reveals intense red berry notes and has a well-defined tannic structure which makes it a good pairing for full-flavoured dishes.
