With this cuvee, my aim was to pay tribute to Pinot Noir. Here at Cassagnau, this variety, which is absolutely emblematic of Burgundy’s finest wines, has exactly the terroir it needs to express itself to the full. Like its compatriot, Chardonnay, the combination of Mediterranean and Atlantic climates provides the freshness and humidity it thrives on.
Following my own tastes and my passion for this terroir, I made this wine in the hope of getting your tastebuds tingling and giving you an enjoyable wine-tasting experience! It is an elegant ruby hue with brilliant tints at the rim. The nose unashamedly displays the cherry notes so typical of Pinot Noir with a spicy, even peppery touch. The fresh palate, nicely set off by hints of violet and berried fruit, is silky and supple, with elegant tannins extending all the way to the enticing finish.
