Les Volets Pinot Noir, Pays de la Haute Vallée de l’Aude

A Noble Red

We raise a glass of this French red to the lovers of Pinot Noir. A smooth and refined red wine exud­ing fruity aro­mas that con­tin­ue on to the palate. A love affair with a seri­ous Pinot like this could be deli­cious­ly dan­ger­ous but def­i­nite­ly worth it. 

Tast­ing Notes from the Curator

Bright ruby red, with upfront aro­mas of fresh­ly-picked rasp­ber­ries and an under­ly­ing savoury leesi­ness. Fleshy red fruits con­tin­ue to the palate and are joined by fine tan­nins and juicy acid­i­ty — the foun­da­tions of a seri­ous Pinot Noir.

Pair­ings

Deli­cious both with and with­out food. Makes a great pair­ing part­ner for her­by sausage casse­role, grilled meat such as lamb, duck and chick­en. For cheeses, you may try this Pinot Noir with Mozarel­la Bufala, Gruyère, Smoked Gou­da and Grana Padano. 

Best Con­di­tions

Grapes are sourced from the wild, rugged land­scape of Pays Cathare that sur­rounds the towns of Car­cas­sonne and Limoux with its argi­lo – cal­caire soils. Home to the AOPs of Langue­doc and Limoux, the vine­yards do not stop with the AOP geo­graph­i­cal lim­its and it is from these out­skirts that some excep­tion­al­ly inter­est­ing wines have been sourced. One of the great advan­tages of the region is that it ben­e­fits from envi­able geo­graph­ic and cli­mat­ic con­di­tions. The warm Mediter­ranean sun­shine is tem­pered by the alti­tude and the cool­er nights are char­ac­ter­is­tic of the foothills of the Pyre­nees. These are ide­al con­di­tions, allow­ing for the longer, slow­er ripen­ing of the grapes and pro­vid­ing a superb base for the elab­o­ra­tion of wines that offer inten­si­ty, com­plex­i­ty and finesse.The tra­di­tion­al noble’ grape vari­eties of Pinot Noir have a nat­ur­al affin­i­ty in the Haute Val­lée de l’Aude. Made from most­ly hand-picked grapes, this wine has been vini­fied in large, old oak bar­rels which impart tex­ture and intensity.

Storage Instructions

Store unopened red wines in a cool, dry, and dark place safe from con­stant vibra­tion. Keep your bot­tle hor­i­zon­tal in a wine rack or cel­lar to retain the moist­ness of the cork.
