2020 Le Fou Pinot Noir

‘Le Fou’ translates as ‘The Madman’, as it has long been thought only a madman would try to produce the perfect Pinot Noir in southern France. Perfection achieved, myth dispelled.

Tasting Notes 

Nose

Fuller than Pinot Noir from Burgundy, it has a warm, rich nose with aromas of black cherry compote. 

Palate

The palate is nicely balanced with an exciting, savoury streak provided by ripe, tasty tannins.

2020 Le Fou Pinot Noir

Production

An unique take on Pinot Noir from two growers' plantings in the sun drenched vineyards of the Southern Languedoc. Picked at optimum ripeness, balancing phenolics and acidity then cool vinified to enhance the fresh fruit flavours. No oak was used to keep this wine as pure and sensual as possible.
