Xavier Flouret Pinot Noir Menetou-Salon Rouge Noir 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

WINEMAKER: Pierre Clément WINERY: Domaine de Chatenoy HISTORY: In 1560, Sébastien Clément is recognized as a respected winemaker of Menetou-Salon and in 1709 the family settles at Domaine de Châtenoy. Since 1985, Isabelle and Pierre Clément, the 15th generation, steeped in this ancestral passion for wine, have guided Domaine de Châtenoy to its current standing. VITICULTURE & VINIFICATION: The vines are harvested by hand and the entire harvest is vinified for 15 to 20 days by pumping over (remontage) and pushing down of the skins (pigeage). Spontaneous fermentation with local natural yeasts occurs in temperature-regulated stainless steel vats. Malolactic fermentation and maturation in oak casks for one year, before bottling in autumn.

Close to Sancerre, Menetou-Salon produces a soft style of Pinot Noir, the acidity tamed by fresh tannins and loganberry fruits. A hint of wood gives extra weight.



Tasting Notes:

Eye: Dark ruby color. Nose: Raspberry and vanilla. Palate: Specific earthiness. Marries red fruit with subtle oak flavors to end on a clean finish.
