A very distinctive and immediately enjoyable Pinot Noir, this is a very juicy, raspberryish, cherryish wine with hints of strawberry and oak and a refreshing note of pepper.

NEW WAVE FRENCH WINE, COMBINING FRENCH REGIONAL CHARACTER WITH NEW WORLD ACCESSIBILITY
FROM ONE OF THE OLDEST WINE REGIONS IN FRANCE (THE ROMANS MADE WINE HERE)

Vineyard Notes

From the coolest area (Limoux) of the South of France influenced by the fact that it is:
– Situated at the foothill of the Pyrenees rising to 400 meters above sea level
– Sea breezes both from the Mediterranean and the Atlantic Ocean

Strong viticulture control: starting with defined Clone selection aimed at obtaining low yields, good canopy management helping produce ripeness. The rows are grassed down to avoid excessive vigour. In tourist terms, Limoux is considered the Tuscany of the South of France.

Winemaking Notes

Made in a very Burgundian manner. The whole bunches went through a period of cold soak. Fermentation on skins lasted 2 weeks prior to pressing. There was Burgundian-style manual punch-down to break up the cap and maximise colour. Very little press wine was used.

Food Pairing

Great by itself or to accompany a wide range of meat dishes, but could also be enjoyed with fish such as tuna or salmon.
Serving note: Would be good slightly chilled, especially in warm weather.
