in the cellar : The Haute Cabrière Pinot Noir 2008 was matured in barrels of French Oak from Troncais and Allier for 10 months. 30% of the barrels are always new.

Barriques should enhance the characteristics and flavours of the Pinot Noir cultivar, rather than disguise them. In the words of an old Burgundian Vintner “...wood should be like a theatre platform for her to perform on; not a curtain that would hide the play”!

Pinot Noir with its tiny berries and thin skins should reflect its terroir and can record the vintage more accurately than any other cultivar. She requires, if not demands, total dedication and commitment.
