To maintain its elegant, classy character and lovely aromatic freshness, the Rosé de Pinot Noir (also called Oeil-de-Perdrix) requires “cold” terroirs. Our winery’s Pinot Rosé comes from vine parcels that are selected for this: from La Girarde, a very steep (40-50%) slope that benefits from hot days and very cool nights.
After a delicate destemming and short maceration (24 to 36 hours depending on the vintage), slow pressing extracts the aromas and first tannins from the grapes.
This approach gives us a rosé with character – a wine that is vinous and classy, yet fruity. The maceration gives the character of this Pinot Rosé the typicity we’re looking for.
