2014 Reynald Héaulé A Contre Courant
Organic Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Gamay, Cabernet Franc and Côt.
Very short maceration without extraction – part de-stemmed, part semi carbonic, then élevage for 18 months in old barrels. You may need to decant this - sometimes there is a slight reduction, but it blows off to reveal a wonderful wine. The strawberries and raspberries here are super lifted on the nose – wow, so fresh! Always when you open this wine you think it’s a bit musty or something, but it blows off. Man, so fresh.
