Majolini. Franciacorta Brut Blanc de Noir NV
Grape Pinot Noir
Deep minerality, toast and berry flavours with a touch of camomile, tarragon, slight of apricot and toast.
Growing Pinot Noir on the terraces of Franciacorta is no easy task, this is one of the reasons that ‘straight’ Pinot Noir is so unusual. Majolini's is a truly epic wine which throws a gauntlet down, sadly there isn't really enough of it to trouble the Champenoise
For us, it was love at first sight in 2003 and happily we took a fair percentage of the first 2,700 bottles that were made. It is probably the best straight Pinot Noir that I have tasted. It will age, if you can be patient.
