L'Escargot Pinot Noir 2011
|Bright, dark ruby color.
A little smoky on the nose with a nice, slight herbal edge.
Medium entry of light but vibrant black cherry flavors riding a stony minerality.
Lovely crisp acidic finish that carries the fruit flavors.
Really good food wine.
Great value here!
|Wine maker notes
|Escargot Pinot Noir i s sourced in the foothills of the Montagne Noir above Bezier in the South of France. Southern sunshine ensures that this Pinot is ripe and deep-colored; it shows the beautiful wild cherry fruit and cherry-stone notes on the nose and palate so typical of the variety. The attitude meanwhile guarantees balance and a lingering, refreshing finish.
|Serve very slightly chilled with grilled fish or simply sip Escargot Pinot Noir with a boil of olives and thin slices of 'saucisson sec'.
