Winemaking and Aging

Grapes are harvested by hand then sorted out and totally destemmed. Maceration is made and alcoholic fermentation lasts from 12 to 15 days in temperatures' control vats, with punching of the cap. Aging is 20 % made in oak barrels (10% new oak) during 10 month. Malolactic fermentation is 100 % realized. Wine is bottled in Traditional Burgundy bottles. The cork is marked with the estate's name and the vintage. Robert Vernizeau is the winemaker at Domaine des Perdrix for 16 years.

Tasting notes

The wine is pleasant in a glass: a brilliant beautiful garnet colour with ruby tints.
Fresh fruits open the nose: raspberry, redcurrant, red fruits and blackcurrant with a nice intensity.
The palate is fresh, balanced and smooth. Harmony on the fruitiness with addition of spicy notes (light pepper) which refresh the mouth. Tannins are present but not firm making the wine structured. Potential for cellaring.
