Free draining loam soils over schist gravel make the property ideal for harvests of outstanding Pinot Noir. The huge diurnal temperature variation adds to the structure and concentration of the wine. Grapes are gently de stemmed, allowing whole berries to remain intact. After a week of cold soak, each parcel is separately vinified through mix of wild and cultured yeasts. Batches are hand plunged for optimal extraction of colour, flavour and tannin. Ferments are pressed into a selection of seasoned and new French oak barrels for completion of malolactic and a term of maturation before assemblage into the finished wine.
Ruby red colour. Aromas of dark cherry and berry fruits, spice, floral and dried herbs over a background of well intergrated oak. A smooth palate of dark cherry and bramble flavours, fine tannins in support, before an exquisite finish on a length of lingering black cherry flavours and balanced, raspberry acidity. Match your Mudhouse to twice cooked duckling or truffe et Port Salut soufflé.
