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.
This Pinot Noir has a dark color, with ruby tints. It has scents of red and black berries mixed with floral notes, together with hints of delicate wood and vanilla. It is complex, rich, long and fat on the palate. It displays aromas of crushed black fruits (blackberries, blackcurrants, cherries) and jam. The tannins are plump and well-integrated.
Serve with traditional food such as shepherd's pie, gratins, stews, grilled meats, rib of beef, steak au poivre or loin of lamb.
