Country of Origin: France

Primarily sourced from a vineyard in the dried lake bed of Etang de Marseillette, alongside the Canal du Midi and east of Carcassonne. This has proven to be a special terroir for Pinot Gris, always cooler than the rest of the region and with excellent soil moisture.

Tasting Note:

Pale and bright in colour with a light bronze tint. The nose is expressive and pure with aromas of apple, spice and citrus. The palate is bright and fruit driven with a vibrant core of pear and apple flavours, more spice, an attractive textural grip and soft mineral length.

This is the third vintage of Le Chat Noir Pinot Gris and one of the very first Pinot Gris ever produced in the South of France. Until 2009, French Appellation laws restricted the planting of Pinot Gris to the Alsace region. Now planted in the South of France, Pinot Gris offers much promise – creating a more elegant fruit-driven style whilst retaining the varietal richness and complexity.
