The varieties for the Joue Red are Pinot Noir & Marechal Foch. The vintage consisted of a cool, wet early-summer, followed by a warm, dry late-summer and autumn. The fruit is estate-grown on glacial stone and gravel soils, using permacultural and dry-farming approaches. 100% Whole-bunch fermentation, followed by a “Ripasso” treatment using the pressed skins from the Somenos Pinot Noir. Fully aged in stainless. No yeast, enzymes, nutrients, or sulphur was added in the process. Unfined and unfiltered. 

Juicy, bright and exuding perfume and expressive fruit. Contrasting structural and textural elements render this a refined, highly consumable red.
