Overview

The cool climate Aude Valey in the south of France produces arguably the best French Pinot Noir outside of Burgundy. The high elevation and cooling evening breezes result in a clean and fresh wine with balance tannin and true varietal character.

Totally de-stemmed before a long, cool maceration. Maturation is primarily in stainless steel with roughly one third undergoes carbonic maceration aiding aromatics and fruit expression. A further third receives six month maturation in French oak barrels for greater complexity.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Inspired by the humble village bistro that is at the heart of French culture and cuisine, the Le Chat Noir wines are generous and approachable – full of flavour and perfect for sharing with family and friends.   

The Le Chat Noir wines are sourced from the Aude Valley, located in the foothills of the Pyrenees south of the famed walled hillside town of Carcassonne. Rising to an altitude of 450 metres, the terraced, low yielding vineyards are cooled by refreshing winds and chilly nights, creating elegant and varietally expressive wines.
