An unique take on Pinot Noir from two growers' plantings in the sun drenched vineyards of the Southern Languedoc. Picked at optimum ripeness, balancing phenolics and acidity then cool vinified to enhance the fresh fruit flavours. A small portion of the wine (around 15%) spends some time in oak to give added character and weight.
Fuller than Pinot Noir from Burgundy, it has a warm, rich nose with aromas of dark wild cherry and just a hint of toasty oak. The palate is nicely balanced with an exciting, savoury bitterness provided by ripe, tasty tannins.
Lovely with grilled lamb, cold meats, wild mushroom risotto or home-baked ham.
