Champ de Rêves Pinot Noir

2013 Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

Wine Profile

Characteristic aromas/flavors: Vibrant blueberry-strawberry fruit intertwines with aromas of dark-red rose, maple, licorice, and toasted hazelnut. On the palate, juicy raspberry, dark cocoa, and pennyroyal flavors emerge.

Structure: Delicately-balanced acidity and crystalline minerality lead into a firmly structured finish.

Winemaking

Grape clusters hand-sorted and 100% de-stemmed, with 60% whole berries gravity-fed into small open top fermenters. Manually punched down 2-3 times/day. Cold-soaked for 6-7 days and fermented for a total of 14-16 days on skins.

Barrel Aging

9 months in 32% new French oak barrels.
