The Marigny 2020 Carbonic Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley
Origin: Willamette Valley, Oregon, USA
Grape(s): 100% Pinot Noir
Living somewhere between fruit roll-ups and classic Beaujolais, The Marigny Carbonic Pinot Noir is light in tannin and heavy on vibes. Serve with salads, pool parties, roasted lamb.
The Pinot Gris went through full carbonic maceration for 7-10 days in stainless steel. It was drained, dug, and pressed back to stainless to finish fermentation. The wine spontaneously fermented without temperature control. It was not fined or filtered. Read more about the carbonic maceration process here >>
Andy Young is the winemaker. Here's a little bit about Andy from The Marigny website...
Son of the south, Andrew Reginald Young comes from (at least) seven generations of Louisianians, with the last several all holding the name Reginald. He believes that quantum physics and theology create a nice vin diagram, in the same way that really good wine is a combination of science and faith. Other things he believes in: mix tapes, fried chicken and that laughing with your buddies is about as good as it gets. He's been making the Marigny wines since 2015, with the hope that fun, quality, natural wines could be on everyone's table, in everyone's neighborhood, every day of the week.
