Region: Southern and Central France
Site: High, volcanic sites in Auvergne and Puy de Dôme, in the Massif Central.
Grapes: 100% Pinot Noir picked at full maturity and low yields
Fermentation and Aging: Grapes are de-stemmed and given a classic Burgundian fermentation beginning with a cold soak to extract the delicate fruit notes followed by a controlled two week fermentation. The Pinot Noir is produced without the use of oak barrels.
Notes: Unlike so many inexpensive Pinot Noirs, L’Agnostique Pinot Noir shows off it’s French pedigree with elegant aromatics, a beautiful transparency, and a balanced palate.
Pairing: Drink it with grilled fish, roast chicken or game birds, or beef stewed in red wine (ideally stewed in L’Agnostique Pinot Noir). Drink it with pork tenderloin.
