Domaine des Cognettes, Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir, Loire, France (750 ml)
Domaine des Cognettes is a sixth generation winery in the Loire Valley. Located just outside of the town of Clisson, in Muscadet, brothers Stephane and Vincent Perraud use homeopathic treatments to work their organically certified vines of up to 65 years old, including coveted holdings in the granite soils of Clisson. In the cellar, they use a light hand and have lessened their use of Sulphur to under 40 ppm. They make their wines in traditional, glass lined fermenters, that help to preserve freshness during the process. This fresh Pinot Noir is made of Loire Valley fruit from granitic soils. Ripe, juicy red cherry, mineral and fresh herb structure.
