Vin de France: Domaine Pierre Cros La Liberte Pinot Noir 2016


per bottle

'Freedom to think, Freedom to express yourself, Freedom to exist, Freedom is not to do what you want, but to do what we are doing, Freedom to produce, Freedom to consume, Freedom to love.'

The nose is a true Pinot-bomb of cherries in brandy. Smooth and velvety despite its power, with flavours of liquorice, vanilla and cinnamon.

Domaine Pierre Cros

An ex-rugby player, Pierre Cros is known as the King of Concentration – so, unsurprisingly, his wines are full-bodied and entirely superb! Les Aspres regularly wins the coveted three-star award from Guide Hachette, and Pierre also produces a stunning red wine made with Carignan grapes. 

Some of his vines were planted as far back as 1905, and the results are no less than historic - lookout, in particular, for the aptly named red Vieilles Vignes, and the highly recommended Minervois Tradition red, made with 5 different grapes.
