Pinot noir from a vineyard where the composition of the black soil changes dramatically from sand to clay. Auvergne landscape is bipolar, interposing hills of extinct volcanoes and risen ancient sea-bed of limestone. The vines are trained en lyre– double trellis with empty space in the middle, which looks like an ancient harp. It is a traditional trellising that concentrates grapes but requires additional hands-on work. Mechanical work is impossible with en lyre. The nose is expressive, with red cherry, raspberry and flowery notes, the palate is lively and joyful. Easy-drinking pinot, yet structured and perfectly in place.
