Intense, ruby red color and a full bouquet with notes of cherry, plum and a hint of liquorice. Overall a fresh taste and a nice elegant structure.
Anyone who likes it fresh, intense, fruity and elegant is in good hands with this excellent Pinot Noir. A perfect wine for every day, which goes wonderfully well with delicious goat's cheese , savory appetizers such as plums wrapped in bacon or with somewhat heartier dishes (e.g. seared duck breast), but is also excellent as a soloist with an aperitif or as an accompaniment to sweet desserts. Whether with friends on the terrace or with a glass of wine in the evening with loved ones - this wine will brighten up your day.
The 5 hectare "Champ Divin" (heavenly field) vineyard is located on the first plateau of the Jura in the Sud-Revermont region.
It has been run by Valérie and Fabrice Closset-Gaziaux since 2008, who took it over from the Delay family in 2008. The property features a variety of soils and is influenced by a classic continental climate with moderately cold winters and mild summers.
Here they grow Pinot Noir (2 hectares), Chardonnay (2 hectares) and Savagnin (1 hectare), also known as "Traminer".
The property is processed according to biodynamic methods (Demeter-certified) , without the use of chemicals. The vineyard is worked by hand, partially removing and partially leaving the grass so as not to upset the delicate balance of the vineyard ecosystem.
Herbal decoctions (e.g. nettle and chamomile), essential oils, biodynamic tinctures, as well as copper and sulfur are used in very small quantities to combat pests.
The grapes are hand-picked when they are at their best, when they have reached their full potential.
Vinification and aging are carried out with minimal use of sulfur and some of the wines are aged under a veil of flor (yeast), typical of the region, giving them aromas of dried fruit, nuts and almonds, as well as spices such as saffron and curry.
