2021 Reuilly Rouge
The Reuilly vineyards are situated in the Centre Loire Region right at the heart of Berry (2 hours south of Paris). Our vines are planted over 6 hectares stretching to the banks of the Arnon, by the Cher River. They are planted on gentle-sloping hillsides of marl limestone and on high terraces of sand and gravel. The vineyard is planted to only 10% Pinot Noir making this an exteremly rare wine.
The Domaine has joined "Terra Vitis" organization and has committed to a sustainable winemaking process. The goal is to achieve healthy and genuine wines allowing the full expression of the terroirs. In the cellar the wine is made in a state-of-the-art production facility. The wine is aged on fine lees and stirred regularly to ensure richness.
Bright ruby in colour. The nose reveals fresh red fruits, red current, raspberries and ripe sour cherry. The palate confirms the aromas and there's a hint of liquorice adding complexity to the silky smooth tannins and long lingering finish. The 2019 vintage was very hot which results in this dense, age-worthy Pinot Noir.
