The Le Fou Pinot Noir is textural, fruity and savoury creating a great food wine for a variety of dishes and occasions. Delightful aromas and luscious flavours of dark cherries, sweet red fruits, and savoury character of tea leaves and leather.
Le Fou is made in the Vallee de l’Aude, now perhaps France’s most exciting region for affordable French Pinot Noir. Aude is a larger area that includes some of France’s most famous AOC’s including Corbieries, Fitou and has some great cooler climate vineyards on the foothills of the Pyrennes where Le Fou is grown.
DID YOU KNOW?
Le Fou translates as ‘The Madman’ and what most French thought the original growers were to plant, cultivate and eventually vinify Pinot Noir from the South of France, miles from its ancestral home in Burgundy.
