Domaine Géantet-Pansiot, Marsannay Rouge 'Champ Perdrix' 2013

£48.95 GBP

Local fire chief and Harley-Davidson fancier, Vincent Géantet is above all a terrific winemaker, producing Gevrey which combines raw energy with aromatic precision. Supported by son Fabien, Vincent’s prime concern is to keep his Pinot Noir fruit brilliantly fresh and the purple-stained colours and razor-sharp aromas of his finished wines testify to their complete lack of oxidation. To this end, he practises long cold maceration and vigorous extraction, uses predominantly new oak, handles the wine minimally during élevage and bottles without filtration.
