Pinot Noir

France

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 !

VINEYARD

Made from a selection of the best Pinot Noir terroirs.

WINEMAKING PROCESS


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.

AGEING

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.

FOOD PAIRING

Great to enjoy as an apéritief. Pairs beautifully with read meat – BBQ- and excellent with creamy cheeses (Camembert, Brie de Meaux).

Tasting notes

COLOR

Garnet color, purple reflections.

NOSE

The nose opens up to cherry and raspberry aromas.

PALATE

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.
