Vieille Monnaie Pinot Noir
This product is currently sold out.
Vieille Monnaie Pinot Noir. The original French Franc was released in 1360, to pay the ransom of King John II of France. The coin showed the King astride a horse earning it the name 'Franc à Cheval, or "free on horse". This 'old money' Pinot Noir is a pure expression of the grape and a faithful homage to ancient French winemaking.
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.
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.
