100% Pinot Meunier
In early October, the Pinot Meunier was hand-harvested. 80% of the grapes were placed into sealed stainless steel tanks as whole clusters. The other 20% were lightly foot trod and pressed with stems into a stainless fusti tank to ferment spontaneously. After 2 weeks of carbonic maceration, it was pressed and blended with the 20% direct press in a neutral oak barrel. It aged for 5 months before being racked off and bottled in mid-March. Unfined, unfiltered, unsulfured.
