We are delighted to be sole UK importers of this Pinot Noir from Jean-Philippe Agisson`s domaine, located in the hamlet of La Vallée in Sury-en-Vaux. With only 0.3 hectares of Pinot Noir currently in production, volumes are tiny (1000 bottles), the vines and wine being nurtured with utmost care by Jean-Philippe, who is also Head Winemaker at Domaine Didier Dagueneau in Pouilly. In 2019 25% whole clusters were used during fermentation, with extraction being incredibly gentle: “it was an infusion of the skins, with no punching down in 2019”. The wine then aged in large oak barrels for 14 months. Colour is pale ruby-purple, with very pure, perfumed violet, raspberry and red cherry aromas. These carry through to the palate, this being a medium bodied, intense, vibrant wine, with a lightness of step and vivacity that are so true to Pinot of Sancerre. The finish is crisp and persistent (for drinking 2021-2025+).
