Tournee du Sud Pinot Noir 2015, Pays d'Oc

Tasting Note

At a fraction of the price of Burgundy, this is a stylish, youthful and becoming Pinot, medium-bodied, full of berry and cherry flavours, elegant and graceful and moreish.

Producer Note

What a great concept - a Tour of the South of France - get out the vélo and let's join the touriste-routiers. But why be part of the peloton when you can attack from the front, and make wine which really matters and offer wine lovers liberté de choix? Hence, among the delights on offer here is a beautiful Picpoul de Pinet - the fish wine - a vivacious Grenache Blanc/Sauvignon Blanc blend and a quite beautiful and unusual Grenache/ Pinot Noir blend.

Vineyard

The wines for Tournee du Sud were sourced from a range of carefully selected suppliers across the south of France during repeated visits in the spring and summer of 2013, followed by more visits during harvest. The Pinot Noir was the hardest wine to put together; there are few reliable sources in the Languedoc. Final blending was done at the Metairie winery by Beverly Tabbron MW and Steve Daniel in mid December, followed by more tweaking in January of 2014, resulting in an elegant and very moreish example of Pinot Noir.

Serving Suggestion

The fruitiness will cut through most rich foods such as saucisson, full creamy cheeses and pates.
