Pinot Noir Hospices de Strasbourg

A pretty garnet-red dress. On the nose, one discovers an intense, delicately woody bouquet, dominated by aromas reminiscent of ripe red berries. Made from grapes harvested at optimum ripeness, this beautifully scented Pinot Noir combines elegance with power. It expresses a delicious black cherry and morello cherry fruit on the palate, nuanced by woody and vanilla notes.
This wine of character shows itself to be persistent on the finish with fine and silky tannins. Its maturing in casks has contributed to the harmony of the tannins and gives it all its power and complexity.

Particularity: This wine, harvested and vinified in the Cave de Cleebourg, was then selected by a jury of tasters as having the quality, potential and honour to be matured in the ancestral casks of the Cave des Hospices.
