Mariflor Pinot Noir 2019 Mendoza Argentina
“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.
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.
