Pinot Noir, like Chardonnay, is a varietal originating in the Burgundy and Champagne regions (Côtes de Nuit). Unlike Chardonnay, it has relatively little exported to the so-called "New World" regions. The soil of the island Saint Honorat is able to produce Pinot Noir of good quality.
The abbey of Lérins deliberately opted for innovation.
This wine gives us a wine that is both fine and complex and unique! The Saint Salonius asserts its colorful appearance and its complex, structured, suave, opulent and fresh taste.
The quality and notoriety of this cuvée is constantly growing. It was served at the Jury of the Cannes Film Festival and the G20 heads of state in 2011.
Tasting Notes Franck Thomas, Best Sommelier of France and Europe 2000 & Vice Best Sommelier of the World 2004.
The surprising dress for a Pinot Noir because it leaves the ruby character of the grape variety to turn towards notes grenas. The scents of the wine mark a very kirshée imprint finely combining grilled and smoked notes. The mouth is round and supple, showing a rather long structure. The freshness is discreet. The tannins are supple with a touch of firmness. Oxygen and patience allow you to fully enjoy it.
Savor at 15 ° this surprising Pinot Noir on a greedy salad with figs, dried tomatoes, and duck breast.
