Les Cris – red

At the table

Les Cris parcel is a monopoly of our estate. Situated above the wine cellars, it is devoted entirely to Pinot Noir. The first vines were planted by Henry Pellé in 1967. Exposure is from east to west which provides differing grape maturities over the course of one week of harvesting. Les Cris offers us a beautifully dense Pinot Noir that is always well-built with the tannin framework mixing marvellously with both fruit and freshness. A great wine for mealtimes.
