Antique Sancerre Rouge'Antique' Cuvée
This wine is made from our Pinot Noir old vines planted in the communes of Sancerre and Saint-Satur. The vine stocks are deeply rooted in the terroirs in which I myself grew up in and produce small sized gropes with highly concentrated aromas.
This wine is available in France from 31,80 € at your preferred wine shop, or at our online shop Aux Trésors de Bacchus
100% Pinot Noir
Age of the vines
~40 years old
The grapes are from a careful selection of my Pinot Noir old vines. All of my parcels ore treated to the utmost care and attention prior to harvesting in order to ensure optimum aromatic maturity. Green harvesting is carried out after ripening so as to limit yields and increase the concentration of aromas in the fruit. At harvest time, we hand-sort the grapes, then vinify them in single bunches for 3 weeks, pumping over and punching down 2 or 3 times a day in order to ensure a delicate extraction of tannins and colour.
An intense peony red colour.
The nose is discreet at first, opening on violets and black fruit such as blackberry and blueberry and hints of menthol and grey pepper.
The wine is full-bodied, with tannins that are firm but already well rounded, and a long, juicy cherry finish.
16 - 18 °C
A lentil dahl, braised duckling with turnips or chocolate based desserts.
