Pinot Noir Hautes Cotes de Nuits, Manuel Olivier 2017 (Burgundy, France)
Pinot Noir planted just above the Grands Crus of the Côte de Nuits. Located on an East-Southeast-facing slope 350 meters above the Clos de Vougeot on rocky clay and limestone soils, it is destemmed, cold macerated for a week, wild yeast fermented half in tank and half in old barrels then aged on its lees for 9 months. Then it is bottled unfined, unfiltered and with a minimal drop of SO2. This wine is a bright yet dense Pinot Noir that offers red berry and flowery notes, ending with a long finish.
