Closerie des Lys Pays d'Oc Pinot Noir 2020

Regular price $19.50 Sale

This is remarkably delicious and well-made Pinot Noir at a terrific value price.  The grapes grow in France's Languedoc region, which makes you think "hot." But this is from the tiny sub-region of Limoux where there's limestone in the soil and a moderate enough climate that sparkling wine was pretty much invented here.  Well, and high enough for cooling, too, as all the vines are perched at 900-1,700 feet elevation.  The Pinot Noir is destemmed and then goes into the fermenters as whole berries for a sloak and slow bubble on its own schedule.  About half ages six months in barrel, about 10% new
