PINOT NOIR

A classic vine variety of Burgundy that took refuge on the slopes of Mount Parnassus! Difficult to cultivate, demanding small acreage yields to produce quality wines, as well as difficult in the winemaking that demands precision in the winemaking pattern followed in order to produce a wine of high standards. It is aged in brand new French oak barrels for 10 to 14 months.

 

Protected Geographical Indication Parnassus

Variety Composition
100% Pinot Noir

Vinification/Aging

After the grapes are harvested, they are carefully destemmed, then in the absence of a grape mill the grape pulp is led to a stainless steel tank where pre-fermentation extraction is applied at 10°C in a converting environment for 3 days.

Yeasts are then added, and the alcoholic fermentation takes place at increasingly graded temperatures. Before the end of the fermentation, the marcs are withdrawn to avoid the unpleasant tannins from the grape seeds.

Fermentation continues to the very end, with a temperature release (27-28°C) and then mycological fermentation follows inside stainless steel tanks. At the end of the mycological fermentation, the wine matures in French oak barrels for 10 months with periodic stirring of its wine sediments. It is not filtered before the bottling phase.
