Côtes de l'Orbe, Pinot Noir Clos du Mormont, Phusis - S. Bettschen - 2021

An intense ruby colour. Expressive nose of citrus fruit, spices, white pepper, stone powder and red berries. Dense and invigorating on the palate. The body is straightforward, sapid, very centred and mineral, with a very long, complex, fresh and fruity finish. A real class act!

Viticulture

The steep hillside on which Clos du Mormont is situated is home to a vineyard that is mentioned as far back as 814. However, following the phylloxera crisis and the harsh winters of the mid-twentieth century, the vines finally disappeared from the area, until Dr Emile Bonard de la Sarraz replanted them in the early 1980s.

Oenology

In 2021, the pressure of mildew is such that the harvest will be greatly reduced. What's more, at the end of the cycle, birds and drosophila are helping themselves to what's left. In the end, the yield was less than 6 hl/ha. The harvest took place on 10 October and the grapes reached 93°Oe. They were completely destemmed and fermented in stainless steel vats. After around two weeks, the wine is devatted and put into a new barrel for ageing. The remainder (around 30%) is matured in casks. Malolactic fermentation takes place the following summer. The wine is aged for a further two months in wood, then transferred to stainless steel vats for a further 2 months. The wine was bottled unfiltered on 2 January 2023.

Suggestions for accompaniment
