Domaine du Pelican Arbois Trois Cepages 2018
The Trois Cepages, as the name suggests, is a blend of three grapes. It has been produced since the winery’s inaugural vintage, in 2012. At the time, the decision was made to vinify all of their red grapes together, thereby creating this blend of Pinot Noir (60%), Trousseau (35%) and Poulsard (5%).
The vineyards for Trois Cepages are all located in the village of Montigny-les-Arsures. The geology of the soils are composed of predominatly grey and black marls, partially covered with fallen rocks. The vineyards broadly face West, at an altitude between 300 and 400 meters.
Elevage is in Burgundy barrels (50%) and foudre.
