Region: Pays d'Oc
Varietal: Pinot Noir
When Catherine Roque bought her house on the edge of Faugeres, she was told it was too cold and northerly for appellation status. Facing the locals’ skepticism, she changed the experts’ minds with her fabulous non-appellation grapes like Pinot Noir.
Rich notes of cassis & spice on the nose, with earth, plum, and bacon (yes, really). On the palate it becomes very Burgundian with great acidity, earthy minerality and light tannins. This wine would love 30 minutes of air.
Here we add information on wines as they come in. We will try to keep up with out-of-stocks and vintage changes but we make no promises. For the most up to date information call, email or stop by. Cheers!
