Tony Bornard Vin de France Le Pinot Noir 2016

$63.00

'It is useful to remember that Tony's vineyards are only an hour's drive from the centre of Burgundy, so it is not surprising that Pinot is grown here

This is a more serious Pinot Noir than his early drinking Le Pinot Ctambule 2015, which we received last October and were showing at Rootstock 2016. The vines are about 25-30 years old growing in black and red marl in a parcel just near the famous Pupillin sign you can see as you drive along the N83 from Poligny to Arbois.

During maceration Le Pinot had a little pigeage and pump-over so it is slightly more extracted than Le Pinot Ctambule. This wine was aged in a single 400 litre barrel and was bottled in June 2016.'
