Pinot Noir Cuvee 'Village', J.L Denois, Languedoc, France

This is a fresh style of pinot noir made with precision by the pioneer of the variety in the Languedoc since 1988. This elegant medium bodied red wine is made from carefully selected grapes from the second picking. It has a soft and almost understated red colour, that is perfectly matched with its round and polished bouquet of ripened red fruits.

On the palate, strawberries, cherries and lighter red fruits burst in the mouth with tiny hints of grenadine and white pepper in the finish that doesn't linger.

Food Match: Cured meats, pates, chicken, lighter red meats

EU organic

The Vineyard: The soil is a made up of calcareous clay and organically grown (compost). Careful tilling, with only the best grapes hand-harvested  picked and then kept for 2 to 3 weeks after the first picking for the sparkling wines.

Winemaking: The grapes are careful destemmed without crushing. The whole-grapes are then loaded in small deoxygenated vats without any added sulphites. Pre-maceration takes place in the cold and with the light stirring. This is followed by soft pressing, settled in vats, again without sulphites and put into old barrels of 500l. 

Ageing: The malolactic fermentation stops naturally and ageing proceeds on fine lees without racking. A small amount of sulphites (<3mg/l) is added only before setting to guarantee the transport and ageing process. Complementary ageing in bottles in the cellar in Limoux.
