RITUAL – RITUAL PINOT NOIR 2015
Notes de dégustation: du pinot noir juteux tout en fruit sur la cerise et la framboise. C’est rafraîchissant, soyeux, de densité moyenne mais quelle générosité de fruit bien mûr et quelle définition précise du pinot noir!
VIN : RITUAL PINOT NOIR 2015
The first Pinot Noir I tasted was the 2015 Ritual Pinot Noir. It was sourced from different plots on the eastern part of Casablanca on decomposed granite soils, and they used 30% full clusters for the native fermentation. The wine matured in 400-liter French oak barrels, only 15% of them new. There is a combination of ripe red fruit with a faint herbal twist and a touch of freshness; it seems like the higher yields compensated for the slightly warmer growing season. This is quite fruit-driven and is fresher than in previous years. 96,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in December 2016. Robert Parker. The Wine Advocate. 89+/100
