2017 PINOT NOIR DOMAINE LOIS LOUISE “TWISTY RIDGE” 375 ML HALF-BOTTLE

The fruit was hand harvested September 26th to October 5th, 2017. After a 5 to 10 days cold soak, the grapes underwent traditional vinification methods including foot crushing, whole cluster fermentation with native yeast, malolactic fermentation on lees, and gravity transfer. The wine was aged in Francois Frères barrels (Bertrange Forest) for 19 months and was bottled unfiltered.

The thin (18-inch) clay-loam topsoil and cold windy weather of Twisty Ridge produce our “big red wine.”Ronn Wiegand: “An excellent wine (****). Intense, youthful, and both richly fruity (plum, blackberry) and herbal-peppery (green herbs, black pepper), with light oakiness. The palate is supple and concentrated. This is a rich, somewhat bigger and higher tannin wine with years of development ahead. It is lightly oaky, with a very persistent aftertaste. Likely at its best in 2024-2028.”
