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 color 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

100% Pinot Noir.
Made from a blend of wines produced by a traditional fermentation and a thermo-vinification. We are seeking to achieve a balance between fruit and structure, which will bring out the finest expression of the grape variety.

Maison Castel, Touch of France wines, simple, easy to choose and pleasant to taste.
