Pleasant nose showing red fruit and hints of liquorice. Medium bodied, juicy, vibrant and smooth in the mouth, delivering red berries, mainly lingonberry and some raspberry.Low tannins but rather decent acidity to give it a little structure.Found more of the grenache in the smell while the palate was more like pinot.Nice stuff with good QPR.
This is a special blend made by Gérard Bertrand specifically for Finnish market. It is an IGP Languedoc red made with 75% Pinot Noir, blended with 25% Grenache.
The color is rather translucent red. On the nose the wine is rather big and fresh with lots of red berries bringing Pinot Noir to the fore. Some sweet florals, liquorice and allspice in the background. On the palate the wine is light-to-mediumbodied, juicy and nicely acidic. Lots of tart lingonberry Pinosity, fresh raspberries and other red berries fronting the palate with very little Grenache in the mix. Overall the wine is Pinot-like with its fresh and quite light body, with Grenache bringing probably more flesh and alcohol to the whole. The wine does not, however, suffer from alcoholic heat. Very little tannic action, yet the acidity gives a good backbone to the wine. The wine finishes pretty long with tart red berries and toastiness.
Even though this rather lightbodied and fresh wine does not follow its big nose, it is a great - yet unconventional - red blend. Nice, simple and fresh red wine on its own, but due to its lively body, it can be easily paired with lots of less hearty foods. Excellent QPR at 10,89€.
Sweetish toffee nose with red liquorice, ripe strawberry and slightly lifting herbaceousness. Medium bodied, smooth and balanced fruity palate of red and dark fruits. Plum, strawberries and some liquorice. Slight toast character towards the drier mid-length finish. Perfectly quaffable easy stuff. Nothing of real interest.
