Description

Jean-Paul Balland Sancerre Rose Pinot Noir 2019

A brilliant and limpid purple-red appearance, beautifully intense, include a purple fringe. The initial impression on the nose is intense and gourmet (black currant and blueberry), with a nota of spicy (pepper) with a caramel hint. Upon aeration, the nose opens up with a mature expression and rich aromas of black cherry, sweet spicy notes (cacao, pepper).Full-bodied and concentrated punch with fine tannins, reinforced by fond spicy and woody. A complex symphony of flavours come together in generous notes of cherry, blackberry, violets and coffee hints.

100% Pinot Noir from the family wine estate, with calcareous-clay.
The grapes are manual harvested and maceration and alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel temperature regulated tanks. Daily pumping over and cap dipping enable a delicate extraction. Ageing and malolactic fermentation in 600 liters barrels (demi-muids) for 12 months. Racking and blending oak barrels and tanks before bottling.
