Domaine Francoise Andre

The harvest is done manually with a meticulous selection of the clusters. Destemming is extensive, only 10 to 15 % of the stems can be kept from the well-ripened cuv‚es to add a note of aromatic freshness. The pre-fermentation maceration period lasts around 4 days, during which daily crushing and pumping is done. The objective of this controlled, supervised maceration is to encourage the optimal extraction of elements from the skin and to limit, as much as possible, the addition of unwanted elements from the seeds. Racking takes place 15 days following the grape harvest. The must is then aged in 228 litre barrels. 30% of the barrel is renewed annually; voluntarily moderate as to let the terroir express itself. Hand in hand with our Coopers, we seek the perfect equation between the type of barrel and the wine?s character. 

Millisime 2017 From the Pinot Noir it takes on the muted tone of a ruby. Blood orange and green pepper bestow upon it a full aromatic character. Its elegant tannins with softened angles invite the mineral realm to take possession of the palate.Very powerful.
