Description & Technical Information
-
Nicolas Maillart sorts his wines according to the type of soil and age of the vines. Some wines ferment in oak barrels and may undergo malolatic fermentation if neccessary. This natural approach is the key in the cellar as well; the wines are fermented using wild yeasts and are neither filtered nor cold-stabilised.

A single vineyard "Les Jolivettes" vinified in small oak barrels and rested 8 months on lees before bottling. Just 3626 bottles were made.

Jancis Robinson MW
“100% mass-selection Pinot Noir planted in 1987 in the middle of a south-facing slope, grown fairly biodynamically on a 0.6 ha single vineyard on chalk. Picked on 13 September with a potential alcohol of 11.3%. All fermented in oak and left for more than six months on the lees. No malo. Disgorged September 2019. Zero dosage. 3,626 bottles. A lot of information on a very readable back label. Chapeau!
Very pale copper colour. Not especially frothy to look at but it does rather explode in the mouth. Not as dramatic on the nose as the Roses de Jeanne or the Eric Rodez Blanc de Noirs. Rather mild impression on the nose, and indeed on the palate. Still a bit astringent. Not (yet?) beautifully integrated. Amazing that a wine with zero dosage can taste almost sweet. The Bouzy effect? Just seems slightly less intense than the other two Pinots in this collection.”
