This is a gorgeous, well-integrated Auvergnois Pinot from Marie + Vincent Tricot who tend 10.5 hectares of vines around the village of Orcet in the Auvergne.
Vinification: 100% Pinot Noir hand-harvested from 40 year-old vines grown in limestone, clay, and basalt soils. The grapes are destemmed and undergo spontaneous fermentation (ambient yeasts; no temp. control) in barriques before a 12-month élevage in wooden casks. Bottled unfined, unfiltered with no additional SO2. 13.5%ABV
