Les Jamelles Pinot Noir
The Les Jamelles Pinot Noir has a dark color with ruby red nuances. It impresses with scent notes of red and black berries, mixed with floral tones and a delicate hint of wood. On the palate it is very complex and fruity, rich, long and fat. In contrast to many other Pinot Noir wines, this one is not dominated by heaviness and excessive over-maturity.
