Intro to Les Volets Pinot Noir Haute Vallee de l’Aude –

Les Volets Pinot Noir Haute Vallee de l’Aude France is a wine with an appealing nose with typical strawberry and red fruits tinged with the depth and complexity of subtle oak integration. Quite a rich yet savoury palate of bright flavours, lusciously smooth and effortlessly fruity. A balanced and well-made wine.

Full tasting note and wine making –

The southern French provenance of the Les Volets Pinot Noir is reflected in the upfront aromas of freshly picked raspberries and an underlying savouriness. Fleshy red fruits and jam continue to the palate and are met with structured tannins and acid – the foundations of a serious Pinot Noir that is showing all the signs of longevity and potential for cellaring.

The producer –

Sourced from the lesser-beaten territory of Pays Cathare that surround the towns of Carcassonne and Limoux. The beautiful rugged environment with its argilo calcaire sub strata is home to the AOP Languedoc and Limoux, but the vineyards do not stop with the AOP geographical limits and it is from these outskirts that we have sourced some exceptionally interesting wines. One of the great advantages of the region is that fact that it benefits from enviable geographic and climatic conditions allying the warm Mediterranean sunshine which is tempered by the altitude and the cooler nights so characteristic of the foothills of the Pyrenees. These are ideal conditions allowing for the longer, slower ripening of the grapes, thereby providing a superb base for the elaboration of wines that offer intensity, complexity and finesse. The traditional noble grape varieties of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir have a natural affinity here in the Haute Vallée de l’Aude, as does the less widespread Malbec (originally known in France as Cot).

Drink with –

Delicious both with and without food; try with a herby sausage casserole, grilled lamb or pea and ham soup. Don’t serve too warm!
