Origin

This Pinot Noir Grande Réserve, selected from among the terroirs of the Pays d’Oc, is classified as a Protected Geographical Indication wine. The Pinot Noir is a black grape variety with a thin skin, which tends to produce wines that are pale in colour and fairly low in tannin. Because of its Mediterranean climate, the Pays d’Oc enables this grape variety to obtain perfect balance, good maturity and reveal its delicate aromas.

Vinification

Long, 4-5 weeks maceration in order to extract the finest expression of the grape variety and obtain a dense, concentrated and powerful wine, also capable of cellar-ageing. Slow, traditional vinification to retain the character of the terroir and the grape variety. Blending is carried out with precision applying the typically French expertise with Languedoc wines.
