After successful careers as a biochemist, then in fashion marketing, Pierre Fenals took up winemaking aged 51, and founded Maison En Belles Lies in 2009. He works his vineyards biodynamically and declares: “My wish is that my wines, white and red, still smell of grapes, impregnated with their fresh scent after 14, 18, 20 months élevage”.
This wine comes from a 0.55ha holding of 50yo vines planted in a lieu-dit called Les Chataigniers at 310m altitude above the village of Saint Aubin. Pale-coloured, it is juicy, fresh and elegant with sustained red fruits aromas typical of pinot noir. As Pierre likes to point out this is the perfect accompaniment for BBQs with good friends!
