Mariflor Pinot Noir 2019 - Rolland Collection

Mariflor Pinot Noir 2019 Mendoza Argentina

100% Pinot Noir

“Charming and mouthfilling…”

Fairly deep crimson colour.

The nose is intense with aromas of ripe red fruit accompanied by retronasal floral notes.

Charming and mouthfilling with a beautiful structure and fine tannins on the finish.

2019, a great vintage that will benefit from a little more ageing.

Michel Rolland

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.
