The Pays d’Oc is an immense viticultural region encompassing 741,300 acres of vines spread out across four departments in Southern France that border on the Gulf of Lion: the Aude, the Gard, the Hérault and the Pyrénées-Orientales. The vast surface area of the vineyards accounts for the extraordinary diversity of their soils: sandy near the sea, limestone, schist, clay, and gravel which are all ideal for growing a wide variety of grapes destined for the making of great wines. The winegrowing region, with its Mediterranean climate, benefits from an exceptional amount of sunshine.
Pinot Noir from the Pays d’Oc region is vinified in the traditional Burgundy method; de-stemming and crushing followed by cold maceration and a two week fermentation period in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Part of the juice is then aged in Burgundy barrels using only French oak, the rest kept in the tank. The winemaker then creates the best blend of both juices while respecting the rich Pinot Noir fruit.
Hearty and intense with notes of jammy fruits, spices and herbs.
Friendly, harmonious and structured with round tannins. Black currant, licorice and black cherry flavors followed by a long lasting vanilla finish. A wonderful companion for the entire meal.
