LES NOBLES PIERRES
Les Nobles Pierres
AOC Pic Saint-Loup
Plot Selection : The vines are planted on a soil resulting from the breakdown of calcareous rocks, made by water, frost and temperature change during one of the last cold stage of the Quaternary period.
Winemaking and Aging : Harvest by hand. Entirely destemmed. Traditional winemaking with 3 to 4 days maceration process followed by alcoholic fermentation during 15 to 20 days in conical trunk tanks. Aging in French oak tuns during 12 to 14 months, then 3 months aging in vats before bottling and minimum 1 year aging in bottle.
Tasting : This wine has an intense purple color with purple reflections. On the nose, it is very expressive, aromas of black fruits, fresh figs and undergrowth evolving towards notes of sweet and empyreumatic spices. On the palate, we find the aromas of ripe black fruits. It is a fresh wine with structure and fine tannins, which reveals a silky and velvety mouth with a beautiful length.
