L’INSTANT Pinot Noir – Jean Marie Berthier – 2017
Bright, garnet coloured wine, this red Pinot Noir has a typical nose with dark fruits.
The freshness on entry to the palate is partnered by a velvety texture. Cherries, blackberries and blueberries combine to create an excellent harmonious wine.
Pleasure, intensity and fruitiness…
Serve it between 10°C and 12°C.
Drink it now or wait 2-3 years.
Grilled red meats and rabbit cooked with mustard. It also goes surprisingly well with liquorice ice-cream.
Vin de France,
L’Instant Pinot Noir Rouge
2017 is the latest in a succession of early harvests. As winter drew to a close with temperatures worthy of late spring, nature
snowballed ahead. The vines continued to reach each milestone early, right up until harvest – despite very variable conditions which changed month by month and area by area. In short – Centre-Loire’s 2017 wines are made for enjoyment.
The vines grow on clay-limestone soil.
Alcoholic fermentation is performed in vats for 10 to 14 days at temperatures between 26 and 32°C. Throughout this process, the must is pumped over twice daily so as to maximize the extraction of colour and tannins.
Pinot noir : 100%
Malolactic fermentation is performed in stainless steel tank. To finish the wine is racked, aged for 6 to 10 months and the bottled.
