This inviting French Pinot Noir is bursting with supple, sweet red berry and cherry flavours. Fruit from the Gers region, in the centre of southern France, provides a core of vibrant and expressive fruit with impressive depth. The high altitude, cool climate Aude Valley fruit adds lifted aromatics, savoury complexity and bright, fresh acidity.

Palate

The palate is equally inviting with a core of supple, sweetly fruited red berry and cherry flavours. Notes of forest floor and smoky spice add complexity before fine tannins provide definition to the long, lingering finish.

Background

Totally de-stemmed before a long, cool maceration. Maturation is primarily in stainless steel with roughly one third undergoing carbonic maceration, aiding aromatics and fruit expression. A further third receives three months maturation in French oak for complexity. As in much of Europe, 2015 was an outstanding vintage in the south of France. Winter and spring were very wet, ensuring excellent soil moisture levels before a hot, dry summer followed ensuring good growth and healthy vineyards. Finally a moderate but clear Autumn ensured steady ripening and the cool nights courtesy of the clear skies allowed the retention of freshness and natural acidity. Although yields were a touch low, the wines are fantastic with lovely aromatics, excellent depth of flavour and vibrant acidity.
