Traditional Burgundian winemaking techniques, including a prolonged period of pre-fermentation cold-soak and spontaneous fermentation with no additions, and subsequent ageing in specially selected French oak barrels sourced exclusively from Burgundian coopers, comprised part of a gentle, minimalist, non-interventionist winemaking approach. In this way we have crafted a wine which we believe is the most authentic interpretation of our terroir to date, A terroir we believe ideally suited to Pinot noir. And no other cultivar can express the concept of “earth” more accurately than the King of Grapes.
