Corsica | Vin de France
In France, the local bistro is where folks go to relax, socialize, drink wine and dine in a casual, friendly setting.
Our Pinot Noir has all the right qualities of a good bistro wine: it is simple, delicious, fun to drink, and pairs well with lots of different foods and flavors.
Grape varieties: Pinot Noir
Purple red color. Intense aromas of fresh red cherry fruits with spicy hints, tobacco and coffee notes. Long cherry pie and vanilla flavours magnified by a hint of spices (curry). Rich and full-bodied with supple tannins and a long silky aftertaste.
Food matches: Friendly dishes (tapas), tomato based dishes, spicy food, Mediterranean dishes, paella, white or red meat, risotto, grilled tuna, chocolate-based desserts.
Best served between 14 °C and 16°C (57-61°F).
Serving temperature: 14-16°C (57-61°F)
Winemaking: De-stalked grapes – Cold pre-fermenting maceration for 3 days to extract complex aromas (at 12°C) - Alcoholic fermentation in vats with punching of the cap twice a day (temperature carefully controlled to reach 27°C at the end of the fermentation) – Malolactic fermentation in vats.
Soil: The diversity of terroirs (shale, slate, limestone, gravel) adds complexity and richness to the wine.
Climate: Selection of the vines located in the coolest areas. The climate is Mediterranean, very windy with high temperatures and exceptional sun. But due to the location, there is a wide temperature range between cool nights and warm days, ideal for the maturatio
Aging: Classic vinification process with long maceration and partly ageing in oak.
Sizes available: 75cl

"This well focused French red shows black cherry, meaty and herbal notes typical of the varietal, in a round, soft package that has just enough grip to accompany food. Fresh and flavorful, it's made for drinking now, at a price that invites you to imbibe freely."
