Pearl Morissette - 2015 L’oublié
13.5% ALC. / VOL.
A wine of strength, seriousness, originality, classicism, exotic beauty and sinuous textures layering one on top of the other. It's a leisurely walk through a middle-eastern spice bazaar; an invitation into the suppleness of a warm night, a dream that has sprung from the darkness. 5 years of aging in foudre gives this wine the intricate nuances and fluid palate that only time and patience can gift.
Vinification & Élevage:
This cuvée is 100% Cabernet Franc from our 19th Street vineyard, harvested on November 9th and 10th, 2015. Fermentation (100% whole-cluster) by indigenous yeast took place in a concrete vat. Élevage was done in a combination of neutral oak barrels and demi-muids for 24 months, followed by further élévage in an old Alsation foudre for an additional 30 months for a total of almost 5 full years of élévage. 2015 L’oublié was bottled unfiltered and un-fined on May 6th, 2020.
