Mariflor Pinot Noir 2014 - Rolland Collection

Mariflor Pinot Noir 2014 Mendoza Argentina

100% Pinot Noir

” Pinot noir is the blue blood member of bacchus’s family tree.” (Gérard Oberlé)

It’s silky elegance with a nose of ripe raspberries and wild berries… well-balanced between sweetness and structure that can be appreciated young and age with harmony.

Despite its compact dark purple grapes, Pinot juice is colourless; this explains that, once vinified with a specific method, this same juice is used to make Champagne. As A. Tchelistcheff said: “Chardonnay is a red wine disguised as a white, Pinot Noir is a white wine disguised as a red”.

What better claim to fame for this most aristocratic variety than to sire the greatest wines of Burgundy and Champagne!

And what a challenge for us, natives of Bordeaux, to attempt to tame this noble and sensitive Burgundy prince !

Four hectares of Pinot Noir were planted in 2002, the unique plot of land with this grape-variety on the Campo of Clos de los Siete.

The first Mariflor Pinot Noir was made in 2005.
