La Villette Pinot Noir VdF
This wine is made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes. The sloping vineyards are located on the foothills of the cooler Pyrenees and Cevennes mountains, in the South of France. Soils are made of limestone, perfect for the delicate Pinot Noir.
Viniﬁcation starts with 2 days of pre-fermentation. A cold maceration in order to get fresh fruit, followed by a two week maceration. Ageing lasts about 6 months with French oak and bottling is done early in order to capture the grapes’ primary ﬂavors.
Refreshing and subtle aromas of ripe raspberries and cranberries with hints of plum and a touch of toast. The palate shows a balance of ripe fruit and freshness with an appealing spicy smokiness.
This light red wine goes especially well with veal and duck. But it can also be combined with poultry and pâtés.
