There is something about Eceuil pinot noir that always keeps you coming back for another sip. On our tasting day, we uncovered lots of yellow fruit with toast on the nose. This is quite typical from this village so the expression is definitely there.
The palate is tangy with a play between Kumquat and citron preserve. It also has a softer more approachable acid profile than the Pierre Paillard wine. Tasted even better the next day, if you can survive that long.Technical details
Ecueil has diverse sub-soils from the Sandy plots over deep chalk to 'sparnacian clay' and shallow chalk at the bottom of the hillsides. The base for this wine is from the 2014 year and pulling some reserves from 2013. The vines are an average age of 30 years old. All 8 hectares are farmed organically.
