This red wine with a ruby ​​color, limpid and brilliant has a pleasant pinoté nose with notes of violet and spices. The red Sancerre wine is powerful, fruity on the palate with good structure.

VINEYARD - TERROIR

The Eric Louis estate extends over an area of ​​32 hectares around Thauvenay in the Center Val de Loire region (department 18), on the south-eastern slopes of Sancerre.
The vines are planted on a terroir made up of two thirds of clay-limestone and one third of flint.
The red Sancerre wine is grown on chalky clay soils, the latter having a preference for heavier soils whose red retains a light fragrance.

VINIFICATION - AGING

Harvests are carried out at night and early in the morning to get the best out of the grapes and preserve their aromatic potential and freshness. The harvest is destemmed and sorted in order to macerate the most beautiful berries which then leave for a cold pre-fermentation maceration without sulphites for 72 hours (allows to extract the ruby ​​color so typical of Pinot Noir and to optimize the concentration. aromatic).
Fermentation in thermo-regulated stainless steel vats between 18 ° C and 25 ° C for 18 days.
Pigeage and pumping over up to twice a day depending on the vintage to obtain a fleshy and structured product that has retained all its fruit aromas.
Part of the wine is aged in stainless steel vats while the other spends 9 months in oak barrels. The wine undergoes its malolactic fermentation there, allowing it to round out and refine.
