Winery: Les Vignerons de Mancey
Region: Burgundy (Mâconnais)
Site: Slopes near the village of Mancey.
Grapes: 100% Pinot Noir
Fermentation and Aging: The grapes are de-stemmed, then go into stainless steel vats. Fermentation lasts about 8 to 10 days, with occasional pump-overs. Racked, a portion into stainless steel tanks and a portion into fûts (barriques), the wine is bottled in July after being racked several more times.
Notes: Light ruby color. Aromas of red fruit, currant, cherry, cherries macerated in alcohol. The nose is very expressive and open. The palate is soft with nice fruit, very cherry pit. It is a simple, delicate, easy drinking wine. A perfect wine for those who like fish with a red wine (salmon or tuna, for example) or more traditionally with sausage and mustard, or perhaps a veal shank.
