Mammoth Pinot Noir Biodynamic

750ml

Tasting Note: Organic, dry-grown viticulture in a powerful terroir makes this something very special. Completely minimalist winemaking – no adds save sulphur, no destemming, etc. – allows the power of the fruit to truly shine. Even with the minimal extraction, the Mammoth Pinot Noir is a dark and brooding Pinot with fabulous depth, power and length. There’s serious concentration but the wine remains bright and savoury with a certain bloody, sappy core (the latter more oak than stem derived) and an abundance of fine tannins. An absolutely brilliant expression of Pinot Noir from the Upper Moutere hills which will be even better with time in the bottle or now with the right food (MG rightly recommends rabbit).

Winemaking Notes: The winemaking follows that of previous releases (i.e. natural ferments and 100% whole bunches), although this year, in response to the season and to avoid excessive extraction, the wines had only 4 pigeage ‘events’, as Glover calls them. The wines also spent an additional 6 months in barrel; in total one year in 1/3 new Ana Sélection hogsheads (a super premium Tronçais barrel used by Nicole Lamarche and Arnaud Mortet for example) and then a further 12 months in older barriques. Glover felt this extra time in oak was important due to the power and abundant tannins in 2015.
