This too is the inaugural bottling of the corresponding parcellary Pinot Noir, made from two hectares in the Clos des Chandelliers. Philippe used a bit less than 10% whole clusters, macerated for roughly three weeks, with no pigeage whatsoever, favoring delicate infusion over firmer extraction, then aged in large 600 liter foudres. I’m glad to see that it has a wonderfully moderate 13% alcohol, from the solar 2015 vintage, no less…A bit less than 350 cases made. Philippe describes it as being incredibly fine and elegant, with wonderful length. With how good the Renardières is, I can only imagine….!! For fans of Pinot Noir of any ilk, especially Burgundy lovers, this (like all of his parcellary Pinot Noirs) promises crazy good substance for the dollah…..
