Héléana & Andre-Jean Morin
Domaine de la Touraize - Arbois, Jura, France
100% Pinot Noir - 12% abv
Héléana & Andre-Jean are manually de-stemming a part of the grapes from the stems without crushing the berries and the other part remain as whole bunches. They use gravity to transfer the wine from one vat to another. Fermentation and maceration lasts for 2 weeks. Fermentation is with indigenous yeasts in vat. Aged for 9 months in tank. Without fining, but with light filtration.
When you open the bottle, the smell is discreet but in time a powerful red berry burst releases from the glass.
On the palate this wine is soft, clean with a kick of acidity that allows for the light structure and complexity to sing until the end. There are no tannins, just red fruity goodness.
Amazing with Christmas dinner. Whether you have meat, fish or poultry, this wine is a winner. Serve at 13 degrees celsius. Even tastes good with left overs the next day.
