Le Fou Pinot Noir Pays d'Oc
‘Le Fou’ translates as ‘The Madman’, as it has long been thought only a madman would try to produce the perfect Pinot Noir in southern France!
‘Le Fou’ wine is a unique take on Pinot Noir from two growers' plantings in the sun drenched vineyards of the Southern Languedoc. Picked at optimum ripeness, balancing phenolics and acidity then cool vinified to enhance the fresh fruit flavours. No oak was used to keep this wine as pure and sensual as possible. Fuller than Pinot Noir from Burgundy, it has a warm, rich nose with aromas of stewed cherries. The palate is nicely balanced with an exciting, savoury bitterness provided by ripe, tasty tannins. Lovely with grilled lamb, cold meats, wild mushroom risotto or home-baked ham.
