Horizon de Bichot, Pinot Noir Vin de France, Albert Bichot, Limoux, Languedoc, France, 2021
Grape: 100% Pinot Noir
From Maison Albert Bichot of Burgundy fame.
Limoux is located due south of Carcassonne in the Languedoc region of south-west France, close to the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean. Pinot Noir, as a single varietal, has to be labelled as a "Vin de France" and the fruit is sourced from 4 different climatic areas giving notable characteristics to the wine. Seeking out wines with dense fruitiness as well as structure to allow for longer ageing periods led us to the Upper Valley (south of Limoux) terroirs for the finesse and freshness of their grapes, which are complemented by grapes from the Mediterranean and Autan terroirs for added intensity and body.
Deep cherry red in colour.
Black fruit nose (blackberry, blackcurrant) combined with sour cherry and raspberry.
Cherry flavours evolve toward peppery, mentholated notes. A hint of cedar rounds out the fruitiness. Silky texture with impressive length. Complex and fresh.
"Aromas of violet, cherry maybe a hint of cola. Lightly toasty oak on the palate. Some lovely earthy flavors with a decent red fruit base" 4.0/5 points, Vivino, 2022
