Vines harvested by hand. Pre-ferment maceration then pressing and racking in oak vats to comlete fermentation. No use of external yeasts, enzymes or other oenological products.
Medium purple and ruby color. The nose speaks of blackcurrant, redcurrant, blueberry and other small red fruits. The mouth has sweet tannins and is rich of floral flavors as iris and violet. There is a good balance between a lovely freshness of fruit and velvety of tannins.
When young accompany with eggs in red wine sauce. In a year or two it will be a perfect match for tender poultry from Bresse. Can be aged for 3-5 years.
The vast 190-acre Château de Pierreux is Mommessin's showpiece estate. From it comes this rich wine, with velvet sumptuousness that is kept in check by some firm tannins. It’s a powerful wine, likely to age, its flavors of strawberry and red currant combining with a weighty texture.
