Winemaker's Notes

100% Pinot Noir from Anne de Joyeuse in Limoux, 30 km west of Carcassonne. The cooler climate and chalky soil of Limoux make it an ideal place to grow quality Pinot Noir in this area of the Languedoc.

Soft, well-balanced and jammy. It is loaded with bright cherry fruit characteristics and finishes smooth. Enjoy with filet mignon, red sauce pasta dishes, rack of lamb or firm cheeses.
