Catherine Riss - Empreinte Pinot Noir 2019
Grapes: Pinot Noir
From a vineyard planted on sandstone. Whole bunch maceration for two weeks, elevage for 12 months in old barrels.
The aromas draw you in. Red fruits, roses and ripe rhubarb. Fine tannins, an underlying earthiness. The darker fruit has a lambic edge, and pops of freshness dance along. The oak coats gently, the fruit scintillating and focused. Elegant, precise, beautiful length.
