Les Jamelles Pinot Noir 2016
This Pinot Noir of Les Jamelles has a dark colour, with ruby tints. It has scents of red and black berries mixed with floral notes, together with hints of delicate wood and vanilla. It is complex, rich, long and fat on the palate. It displays aromas of crushed black fruits (blackberries, blackcurrants, cherries) and jam. The tannins are plump and well-integrated. Unlike many Pinot Noirs grown in the Pays d'Oc, this wine is not dominated by heaviness or an excessive over-ripeness.
Les Jamelles is a unique collection of handcrafted varietal wines that have been produced in the Pays d'Oc, in the South of France, since 1991.
Catherine and Laurent Delaunay travelled throughout the Languedoc-Roussillon region for several years to determine which were the best terroirs for each variety and convince growers to work with Les Jamelles to produce characterful, well-balanced, complex wines that express their varietal characteristics.
The grapes, grown year upon year by local growers, are vinified on site as close as possible to the vineyards, under the watchful eye of Catherine Delaunay and her winemaking team.
The most up-to-date techniques are used, and are adapted to suit the characteristics of each wine and each vintage.
