This Pinot Noir features a bright ruby color. It exudes aromas of red fruits, especially cherry and wild strawberry. With an elegant and luscious mouthfeel, the fruit-forward palate has notes of spice from the French oak. Unctuous and delicious through the finish.
The grapes for this wine came from south-facing IGP vineyards in the Pays d’Oc department of Aude, a few miles from the Medieval city of Carcassonne, in the high valleys of the foothills of the Pyrenees Mountains. Between the lush mountains and the deep blue Mediterranean Sea, it has an ideal climate for growing grapes. After picking and destemming, the juice is pressed, undergoes maceration and malolactic fermentation, with frequent pumping-over during the process. The wine is fermented at controlled temperatures in stainless steel tanks and sees no oak.
The flower pictured on the Pinot Noir label is the Red Poppy, which bloom in the fields and vineyards of the Pays d’Oc.
Pays d’OC Pinot Noir is a perfect choice to serve with soft cheeses, charcuterie, grilled lamb, roasted salmon or raspberry sorbet.
