Bouchard Aîné & Fils Héritage du Conseiller Pinot Noir 2020 (Languedoc, France) "...coffee, cherry, silky..."
The grapes were harvested mechanically, a great way to ensure a pre-fermentary maceration period that will give a wine with brighter color and fresh fruity aromas. After that 4-days period, the harvested plots were vinified separately with a long fermentation of at least 3 weeks. The tank fermentation process ended with a post-fermentary maceration of 7 days at hot temperature to refine the tannins.
Then, the wine is aged for 4 months on fine lees, under wood for a quarter to bring a subtle structure and for the 3 others in stainless steel tanks to keep the fruit and freshness of the grape.
