2023 Pur Jus




We have never done a DNA analysis but we’re pretty certain our Pinot Noir patch grafted over from Cabernet Franc still retains a fair whack of the original Franc. Certainly, the wine we make from this site – Pur Jus – gives a consistently good impression of being straight outta Chinon. A classy, exotic, spicy wine with plum sauce and blueberry pie vibes. 2023 conditions threw in a lick of juniper to create a hint at sloe gin, too. Young, bright, zesty, jus-y. This one will only get better with a bit of time. 100% whole bunch, 90% Pinot Noir, 10% Cabernet Franc, three weeks on skins, matured in a single French puncheon.
