Nice red color, with garnet-red shades.
Expressive and charming on the nose with nice flower notes (violet, peony).
On the palate, fresh and round, a fine and elegant red wine on red fruit notes (cranberries, redcurrants), with a beautiful balance. A nice length, with a soft spicy finish. A beautiful Mediterranean expression of the variety.

Traditional winemaking. A very special attention is paid to the health state of the crop, harvested when fully matured. Complete destemming. Macerating in vats during 5 weeks, under heat monitoring. Fermentation under the effect of selected yeasts. End of fermentation under control of the temperature. When the fermenting process is achieved, free-run and press wines are kept separately and sometimes partly or totally blended, according to the vintage aromatic and gustatory expression. Ageing in vats until bottling.
Nice with roasted beef, poultry, casseroles.

"I finally have an answer for people who ask me, "What's a great Pinot for $10?" OK, it's not great, but it's a solid, clean example of the variety, medium-bodied and clean, with notes of black cherries, cola and subtle spice shadings. - Joe Czerwinski"

"Another well-made wine from this team is the 2015 Pays d'Oc Pinot Noir. Offering a charming bouquet of spices and red fruits, it's medium-bodied, supple and nicely textured on the palate, with solid depth of fruit and length. It's ideal for drinking over the handful of years. - Jeb Dunnuck"
