Aromatic floral scent with smoky, grassy herbal and passion-fruit notes shift to mixed gooseberry and passion-fruit flavours supported by chalky mineral and crisp acidity on the drying finish. Lightly sweet fruit reflects the warm 2015 vintage.
Silky, fresh and elegant with cherry, earth and pepper, the wine glides across the palate and possesses a lifted, refreshing finish. Chill it slightly to make it even more refreshing.
The Demets family has been growing vines in Gyé-sur-Seine in the heart of the Côte des Bar since the 1950s. In the early 1970s they started to think of releasing their own wines, which was a dream realized in 1987, their first vintage. Entirely Pinot Noir, this spent 2 years on the lees and has 9 g/l dosage. Floral red currant and cherry fills this expansive and generous fizz, based on a lightly toasty palate, and seasoned with wild blackberry and hawthorne. The texture is a tad rustic, calling out for pairing with lighter pork or duck dishes.
Light ruby. Ripe red fruits and hints of spicy oak make the nose really inviting. Only half-bodied with silky tannins turning barely firm in the mid-palate and finish. Great purity in the fruity taste. Nice round finish. Ready to enjoy.
Deep purple-ruby in colour with black raspberry, mint and oak spice on the nose; medium- to full-bodied, dry, blackberry and liquorice flavours with a note of dark chocolate. Fruity but firm.
Clear deep garnet. Fairly intense nose of ripe blue and black berries; also maple syrup. Lightish-bodied, cranberry and raspberry fruit-driven with marked acidity. Good match for a casual shepherd’s pie dinner. Drink soon.
