Domaine du Rochouard, St. Nicolas de Bourgueil, Pierre du Lane 2017
Fruit-forward with sink-your-nose-in-the-glass aromatics. Gentle tannins give structure to the juicy red fruit on the palate. On the finish, minerality and acidity balance beautifully.
They use mechanical harvesting and then hand sorting at sorting tables. The wine undergoes temperature-controlled fermentation, gentle pressing with traditional vinification. Ageing in is completed in epoxy-resin-lined cement vats, with light filtering.
