Vin de Pays d'Oc: Chateau Guery Pinot Noir Eternite 2017


per bottle
Tasting Notes

Located at a place called Serre Basse, Chateau Guery's plot of Pinot is one of the few on their property to be oriented North-South on a hillside of clay and sandstone. 

In the cellar, there is a great careful requirement to preserve the fruit, the freshness and sweetness of the tannins, allowing them to collect the best of Pinot Noir: cherry, red fruits, cocoa beans, mocha ... The elegance and finesse characterize the cuvee 'Eternite'.

Chateau Guery

We thought we could not bring more wines from this part of the Languedoc until we found this - the Petit Verdot. The grape, although originating from the South West, was also used in Bordeaux to bring some spice to the wines.

Since it tended to mature too late it has now been discarded by many Chateaux, but here in this warmer part of France there is no problem!
