This Pinot Noir offers pure aromas of cherry, currant, and savory spices. The velvety tannins are nicely balanced by ripe red fruit flavors layered with vanilla and spice.
"Simple but clean with an overall juicy red berry and plum character. A touch of earth and black pepper glimmer on the close."

From a country renowned for its wine-making tradition, Le Grand Noir wines offer untraditional blends from traditional French varietals. In a world where so many things look the same, we’re delighted to offer you a wine that doesn’t sheepishly follow the herd.
The select vineyards used to produce the wines of Le Grand Noir are located in the notable regions of Minervois and Carcassone. Situated among rolling uplands and broad plateaus between the Pyrennes and “Black” mountain ranges, the diverse soils are comprised of limestone, chalk, clay, granite, and schist. The mild Mediterranean climate provides ideal conditions for producing high quality fruit. The wines are bottled in association with Celliers Jean d’Alibert.
