Carrick Billet-Doux Pinot Noir 2019  'no sulphur'


Congrate's to Carrick in having the confidence and craft to produce such a wine.

"Because we believe in expressing our unique site from which our wines are born, the ultimate test for a winemaker is to make wines without any cosmetic refinery, i.e. no fining, no filtration, no preservative. Just grapes. For us it also means that only organically certified grapes are used in the making of the wine, it is bottled without filtration and nothing is added or taken away from the wine during its creation." Winery

"A youthful, vibrant, complex wine on the nose with abundant aromas of blackberry-tart, grilled Mediterranean vegetables, and freshly-picked mushrooms. Quite full-flavoured, and chewy on the palate - energetic, and lively with soft but slightly earthy, pithy tannins, and salivating acid." 93/100 Wine Rater 

"A very inviting complex bouquet with aromas evenly divided between soil and fruit, oak and synergies. Dark cherry flesh, black raspberry, spiced plum then baking spices and smoky wood, sandy hard stone soils then a dark velvet rose complexity. Firm velvety tannins, plenty of acidity, core of fruit and youthful tension adding to the mouthfeel collectively deliver a wine of youth, power, region, personality and length. Best drinking from late 2022 through 2028+." 93/100 Cameron Douglas MS
