Product Story: The Jean Lefort Pinot Noir, made by winemaker Sylvie Ravier, exemplifies the purity, elegance and grace of red burgundy wines. The pinot noir grape, which is considered the hardest grape in the world to cultivate and the most fickle finds its truest expression in Burgundy with its highly aromatic nose of raspberries and other delicate red berry fruits and spices.
After harvest, the grapes are immediately destemmed, crushed and fermented for 6-12 days at 30° C in stainless steel tanks.
