Château De La Terrière / 2018 Pinot Noir Sauvage

COUNTRY/REGION: France / Burgundy.

ABV: 12.5%

GRAPES: 100% Pinot Noir.

Intense and attractive nose with aromas of peonies, red fruits and a hint of liquorice. On the palate the wine is rich, with silky tannins and nice savoury note.

VINEYARDS: From limestone soils vineyards undergoing conversion to organic farming.

VINTAGE: 2018 was the rainiest winter for 60 years. Though average temperatures were normal, this does not reflect how variable the conditions of 2018 were: a harsh December, mild January and a cold February. As a result, budburst happened late in mid-April. Spring was a turning point: sunny, dry and warm, which allowed the vines to catch up and indeed continue ahead of the curve. Mid June then marked the beginning of a drought that continued until the first day of harvest. Harvest began right at the end of August and had to be done vigilantly to avoid over-concentration in the grapes picked later - the heatwave continued. 2018 could well be compared to 2009 with deep colour, complex aromas and remarkable fruit intensity.

WINEMAKING: Manual harvest is followed by traditional Burgundian vinification and ageing for 7 to 8 months on fine lees that impairs a natural antioxidant protection to the wine.
