    Winemaker Notes

    Nice ruby and bluish colour. Fresh red fruits and fine mineral flavors, lively in mouth with fine tannins.

    Serve at 60° with Peking duck, monkfish with red wine and small onions. A raspberry and red currant dessert.

    Nau Freres
    Our vineyard is 49 acres in size, in different parcels, all on slopes facing the Loire River, are entirely composed of Cabernet Franc vines.

    The climate, as well as the soil, mark and inform each vintage and we believe our job is to understand and try to exoress these yearly differences that nature gives to us through the wines.

    We arvest by hand, with no external yeasts added.

    For our cuvée "Les Blottières" the age of the vines are from 15 up to 40 years old.

    Our cuvée "Vieilles Vignes" comes from clay-chalky slopes with vines that are 45 up to 75 years old.

    The wine stays in concrete vats for clarifying and is slightly filtered before bottling. No oak is used in any aspect of the winemaking.

    We are three brothers that keep alive the wine activity of the family. We represent the sixth generation of the family.

    Pinot Noir

    View all wine

    One of the most difficult yet rewarding grapes to grow, Pinot Noir is commonly referred to by winemakers as the “heartbreak grape.” However, the greatest red wines of Burgundy prove that it is unquestionably worth the effort. More reflective than most varieties of the land on which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate, requires low yields to achieve high quality, and demands care in the vineyard and lots of attention in the winery. It is an important component of Champagne and the only variety permitted in red Burgundy. Pinot Noir enjoys immense popularity internationally, most notably in Oregon, California, and New Zealand.

    In the Glass

    Pinot Noir Is all about red fruit—strawberry, raspberry, and cherry. It is relatively pale in color with soft tannins and lively acidity. It ranges in body from very light to the heavier side of medium, typically landing somewhere in the middle—giving it extensive possibilities for food pairing. With age (of which the best examples can handle an astounding amount), it can develop hauntingly beautiful characteristics of fresh earth, autumn leaves, and truffles.

    Perfect Pairings

    Pinot’s healthy acidity cuts through the oiliness of pink-fleshed fish like salmon, ocean trout, and tuna. Its mild mannered tannins don’t fight with spicy food, and give it enough structure to pair with all sorts of poultry—chicken, quail, and especially duck. As the namesake wine of Boeuf Bourguignon, it can even match with heavier fare. Pinot Noir is also very vegetarian-friendly—most notably with any dish that features mushrooms.

    Sommelier Secret

    Pinot Noir is dangerously drinkable, highly addictive, and has a bad habit of emptying the wallet. Look for affordable but still delicious examples from Germany (as Spätburgunder), Italy (as Pinot Nero), Chile, New Zealand, and France’s Loire Valley and Alsace regions.
