The final blend was aged in 15% new French Oak barrels composed of Damy and Billon with both medium and medium+ toast levels for 9 months. This aging process creates a nose of freshly picked cherries, blackberries, black pepper and cocoa. The complexity of multiple clones and elevations shows flavors of cherry, pomegranate, olive, spice, cocoa and infused tea that is nicely balanced with hints of tasted oak. This showcase wine is a true homage to classic Burgundian pinot noirs.
