Usually Yannick makes Pinot Noir that expresses individual terroir but this one mixes different plots, stacking schist with sandstone, clay and sedimentary. Mostly négoce grapes, with just a little of his own Pinot, it’s a sun-influenced wine that’s rich in tannins. All the wines were vinified separately, with one week of whole bunch maceration followed by daily punch downs for a further week, all in open vats before going into old Burgundy barrels.
Deeper in colour and fruit than most Pinots, Pinot Noir Grrrr ’22 is full of character and well-balanced with a touch of volatility that’s a signature of Yannick’s wines. Decant to soften the tannins and enjoy at 14–16°.
