Heritage du Conseiller Pinot Noir

Heritage du Conseiller Pinot Noir bottle

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.

Cherry, pomegranate, cranberry and bramble aromas leap from the glass. This wine offers tart acid and juicy cranberry and pomegranate up front, joined with gentle pepper and spice tones on the midpalate. Tannic grip holds until a final wash of acidity. FIONA ADAMS
  • Winemaking

    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.

  • Nose

    Hearty and intense with notes of jammy fruits, spices and herbs.

  • Palate

    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.
