La Demoiselle - Sancerre red

  We are here on the flinty, clay soil, right on the Sancerre Peak, at the spot
on the east side called "La Demoiselle".
The stone is compacted here into a dense layer of sharp, stumbling flints, a soil that is most unfamiliar to the Pinot Noir giving it great originality.
The flinty mineral makes the cherry seem almost like kirsch with peppery notes that are reminiscent of a côte rôtie.
A real surprise for such a great variety as the Pinot Noir.
