What importer Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant has to say about this wine...
Blend: Pinot NoirProducer: Domaine Méo-CamuzetSoil: Clay, LimestoneFarming: Organic (practicing)Bunches are gently carried to the winery, and then rigorously sorted on conveyor belts, with anywhere from 5-20% of the crop discarded to better ensure qualityGrapes macerate on their skins from 3-5 days at low temperaturesFermentation occurs in temperature-controlled concrete vats, lasting for 2-3 weeksOnly small doses of sulfur are usedPunch-downs occur only at the end of the vinification processBarrel Regime: Careful consideration is given to the barrels and the percentage of new oak used: the percentages vary according to the terroir and the vintage. Méo-Camuzet works in close association with coopers Maison François Frères to find the best diversity of local oaks within the same forest—a necessity in capturing the nuances of each cuvée. Méo has also experimented with the occasional integration of Hungarian oak into their collection.Wines are racked and blended in vats 3-4 weeks before bottlingWines are bottled (unfiltered) by gravity about 17 months after the harvest
