Degustation notes

Typical salmon colour, a nose exuding pleasant aromas of red berries, strawberries and redcurrants, with interesting aromas of mintcandies, supple on the palate then revealing all the fruitiness of Pinot Noir grape, with slightly spicy notes, dry, fresh, a classyrosé!

Special notes

The Neuchatel vineyard covers 612 hectares. It has been proved that winewas already being produced as early as Romans times. The first certified mention of a wine-growing culture in Neuchâtel is included in the Bevaix Priory's founding document. The wine-growingarea extends over 30 km along the shores of Lake Neuchâtel. Whites constitute 60% of the wine production. Besides the main Chasselas grape, Chardonnay is also grown, Pinot Gris and Riesling-Sylvaner. 36% of the vineyard area is reserved for red, the only grape admitted is Pinot Noir.

    Vin fruité, désaltérant, mais peu persistant. Il y a de bien meilleur oeil de perdrix dans cette région comme Cave des Coteaux.

    dieser Oeil de Perdrix kenn ich seit den frühen 80-ern. Der beste und weichste Oeil de Perdrix den die Schweiz zu bieten hat.
