Domaine des Marnières

He admits it without any particular pride: when he first started making wine in 1995, he was, to put it bluntly, out on a limb and his neighbours, fruit growers like him, thought he was a gentle dreamer. The Domaine des Marnières, which lies at the heart of the Herve region, in Wallonia, now produces between 5,000 and 6,000 bottles, most of which are pre-sold from one year to the next. Sometimes, it's fine to be right too early...

Pinot Noir

Benoît Heggen limits his yields to 25 hl/ha to ensure that the fruit is expressed to best effect and he does not, as he says, have to "mess about in the cellar". By vinifying Bordeaux style (but without cold skin maceration), he achieves a fine extraction - which distinguishes the wine from certain other Pinot Noir varieties made in Belgium. The alcoholic and malolactic fermentations of this Pinot Noir took place in stainless steel tanks. The wine was matured in oak barrels for seven months. 

   Ruby-coloured robe of medium intensity. 

   Nose still a little closed with cherries and small red fruits. Allow the wine to breathe so as to release the aromas.

  Full-bodied in the mouth with hints of small black fruits (blackberry, blackcurrant), coffee and white tobacco.

   A piece of red meat or poultry in sauce.

   15-16°C.
