Tasting notes: Deep ruby colour with purple tints. The nose reveals undergrowth and mushrooms. A fleshy, silky palate on liquorice with notes of black cherry and crisp blackberries. A long finish opening into redcurrant.
This vintage has given us a generous, deep, full-flavoured wine without any trace of harshness. The 2017 is elegant, accessible and delicious.
There are 35 hectares of vines spread over three plots with soils made of clay, limestone and silica. It’s quite common to find some sharpened flints between the vines as some parts used to be battlefields in medieval times. The soil type varies but is principally a mix of clay, silex and limestone, with very high acidity levels.
The average age of the vines is 50 years and no synthetic treatments have ever been used at the estate, which is certified biodynamic. Harvest is manual, the grapes are entirely destemmed and the cuvaison is long, continuing for two to four weeks. The “elevage” of the Le Puy wines is done according to the lunar rhythm. The wines are neither fine nor filtered before bottling. Jean-Pierre Amoreau and his son, Pascal, oversee the vineyards and vinification.
