Pierrefittes and Jouères.
Pierrefittes : It is believed that on this land there may have stood a dolmen or "Pierre fichée" (an upright stone). Jouères : The name originates from the old French word "jouelles" meaning the crossbars placed between the stakes and used for tying the vine.
Pierrefittes : light coloured stone, reverberating sunlight, with an underlayer of clay. Jouères : shallow clay and limestone on a hard substratum
81a 19ca and 28a 55ca planted in 1962, 1969, 1984 and 1986.
100% Pinot Noir from handpicked grapes; raised in oak casks.
The wines originating from both sectors are blended together at the end of the maturing stage in casks giving a harmonious combination, slightly dominated by the denser tones of the Pierrefittes wine.
15/16°C. It is recommended to decante recent vintages so as to enhance the aroma.
- After a very cold winter the vegetation growth started quickly as from end of march. The 28th-29th frost had luckily not too much effect on our vines. They started to bloom beginning of june. Alternating cool and very hot spells in july and august made it difficult to decide the right tile for harvest. Finally we started on the 4th of September. Little sortation was necessary because of the quality of the grapes. After fermentation, the wines had a deep shiny shade and very fine red fruit aromas slightly jammy. In mouth the wine is dense , rich and elegant.
