IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS

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. It is well worth discovering. 

Tasting notes
Our Pinot Noir Les Jamelles 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. Unlike many Pinot Noirs grown in the Pays d'Oc, this wine is not dominated by heaviness or an excessive over-ripeness.

Food & wine
Serve at 62 - 66°F with charcuteries, white meat (such as chicken with a cream sauce) and light cheeses.

Soil
Clay and limestone soils. Terraces on the height of the Aude Valley, in the foothills of the Pyrenees. Cooler climate, milder temperatures and rainfalls. 10-year-old vines pruned using the "cordon de Royat" (trellised) and "Guyot" (trellised) methods.

Vinification
Cold pre-fermentation maceration (about a week). One week's fermentation at controlled temperatures. 25% of the final blend is aged in oak barrels for 6 to 9 months.
