We don't think we've ever tasted a sub ten pounds French Pinot Noir that offers more rewarding drinking, and better value than this Southern French beauty. The Les Mougeottes Pinot Noir has a lovely fresh nose of violets and sweet red berries, harmonised by integrated and subtle oak. Rich and velvety on the palate with great poise and structure from the soft tannins. Very drinkable and an easy wine for summer lunches and picnics. Dare we say it, serve lightly chilled on warm days for maximum drinking enjoyment.

Winemaking

Optimal ripe grapes are essential for a good Pinot Noir. The full aromatic potential has already been developed, but the sugar content should be relatively low in order to pre-serve the variety's elegant style. For that, a part of the crop is harvested quite early and ferments at low temperature exalting fruity aromas. The other part, fully ripe, under-goes a traditional, long maceration. About one third ages in French oak barrels for several months adding complexity to the wine.
