Winemaker's Notes

Armorial is the collection of family symbols: a terroir, a grape variety, a style. Pretty gold color with green reflections and elegant effervescence. This special interpretation of Pinot Noir has aromas of white flowers, pastries and dried fruits. On the palate the attack is fresh, fruity and fleshy. A long and delicious finish.
