Pinot Noir, a majestic varietal from Burgundy, alongside the famous Chardonnay, has long been associated with prestigious appellations and wines. At ease in both cool and warm regions, it has succeeded in conquering the whole world. From Germany to New Zealand, including the USA and South Africa, its qualities have been revealed through the expert hands of passionate winemakers from the four corners of the earth. It is therefore no surprise that Pinot Noir has also inspired Roche Mazet.
This variety has a reputation for being fragile but has nevertheless thrived easily in the Languedoc-Roussillon for decades. Roche Mazet’s carefully selected, sun-soaked terroirs produce a superb concentration that reveals the signature aromas of Pinot Noir. A wine that stands out because of its incredible fruitiness.
The Roche Mazet Pinot Noir instantly seduces with its ravishing garnet-red colour and shades of violet. It comes from a gentle maceration of the skins, which delicately extracts the best. Aromas of red fruit mingle with those of black fruit. A gourmet bouquet further enhanced with smoky notes and spices. There is also a delicious fruitiness on the palate with a characteristic minerality that offers a magnificently silky and balanced ensemble.
Best served between 16 and 18 °C to preserve its natural elegance, this wine is the ideal pairing with grilled meat and aged cheeses.
Barbequed prime rib: Pinot Noir will generously envelope this juicy cut of beef.
A charcuterie board: the fruitiness of Pinot Noir will underline the flavours of the cold meats while counterbalancing the fat.
Venison stew: Pinot Noir, spicy and mineral, offers a new dimension to dishes with venison, and enhances them through its structure.
Pays d’Oc is a vast mosaic of wine growing situations and conditions.
Roche Mazet picks out the places where the best of each grape variety is expressed and carefully blends them together with respect and great passion.
