This is another example of the way in which Catherine Delaunay has transferred her family know-how to the South of France. This wine, which is produced in limited quantities, is quite different from preconceived ideas people generally have about Pinot Noir wines when the variety is grown away from its homeland. It is well worth discovering ...


APEARANCE: Dark colour, with ruby tints.


NOSE : Scents of red and black berries mixed with floral notes, together with hints of delicate wood and vanilla.


TASTING NOTES: : On the palate, this wine is complex, rich, long and fat. It displays aromas of crushed black fruits (blackberries, blackcurrants, cherries) and jam. The tannins are plump and well-integrated.
Unlike many Pinot Noirs grown in the Pays d'Oc, this wine is not dominated by heaviness or an excessive over-ripeness.


FOOD PAIRING:  Recommended serving temperature: 17 - 18°C.
This wine goes well with charcuteries, white meat (such as chicken with a cream sauce) and light cheeses.
