Les Mougeottes Pinot Noir
France – 2018
Tasting Note: Clean and precise bouquet with black cherries and raspberry aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit and a silky long finish.
Food Matching: Great by the glass and could be taken even slightly chilled. Would match very well with duck breast, crispy bacon, pasta, cold cuts & soft cheeses.
Vineyard: Fruit for this wine is sourced from the sunny and coastal Languedoc vineyards. The grapes are assembled at the winery from growers under the watchful eye of LGI one of the largest and most consistent cooperatives in the South of France. Oak staves are suspended in the steel tanks to allow a gentle oak influence of the wine prior to bottling.
Vinification: Optimal ripe grapes are essential for a good Pinot Noir. The full aromatic potential has already been developed, but the sugar content should be relatively low in order to pre-serve the variety's elegant style. For that, a part of the crop is harvested quite early and ferments at low temperature exalting fruity aromas. The other part, fully ripe, under-goes a traditional, long maceration. About one third ages in French oak barrels for several months adding complexity to the wine.
