The Vin de France appellation is a great opportunity for J. de VIllebois to work with multiple terroirs.
Made from Pinot Noir grapes grown on selected terroirs, you’ll discover a new style of Pinot Noir. Thanks to J. de Villebois’ expertise with the Pinot Noir grape in the Sancerre, we’ve been able to produce a modern, stylish and affordable Pinot Noir !
Made from a selection of the best Pinot Noir terroirs.
The grapes are machine-picked before their storage into vats. Cold-soaked maceration is done for a week before the fermentation starts. The alcoholic fermentation last for about 7 days after. The malolactic fermentation takes places in the spring following the harvest.
To preserve its style and flavors our Pinot Noir is aged in stainless steel tanks and a small percentage (about 5%) is aged in barrels. The Pinot Noir is then bottled in Spring after a very light filtration. Some sediments may appear at the bottom of the bottle.
Great to enjoy as an apéritief. Pairs beautifully with read meat – BBQ- and excellent with creamy cheeses (Camembert, Brie de Meaux).
Garnet color, purple reflections.
The nose opens up to cherry and raspberry aromas.
The palate is compellingly silky with a finish that showcases crunchy fruit. A very accessible Pinot noir, perfect for drinking with grilled meats in the company of friends.
