Overview

Already cultivated by the Gauls at the time of the Roman conquest, this important grape variety goes far back in the history of the vine in France. Mentioned for the first time under the name “Pinot Noir” in 1373, it is also known by the names of “Franc Noirien” or “Plant Fin” in the Côte d’Or, and “Franc Pinot” or “Petit Vérot” in the Yonne. It has made a reputation for itself among the red wines of Burgundy where it is vinified alone or blended with 15% Chardonnay. In Champagne, it is blended with the Chardonnay or Meunier varietals. Introduced to the Loire region in the Middle Ages at the same time as Chardonnay, it became established in the Orléanais and Touraine regions and remains the red varietal of the red and rosé wines of Sancerre.

Winery Tasting Notes

Cherry red in colour tinged with garnet.

Raspberry and blackberry on the nose with notes of spice (clove and cinnamon).

Delectable on the palate, round attack with fruit flavours reminiscent of blackberry, sour cherry and liquorice. A touch of smoke and spice typical of this wine’s terroir. Structured, well-integrated tannins.

Food and wine pairing

Ideal with grilled red meats, terrines and cheeses.
