Tortoise Creek Pinot Noir Vin de Pays d'Oc 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

'Les Oliviers' is less 'jammy' than its Californian cousins. It is perhaps more Burgundian and is delicate. It has lovely aromas of violets and shows ripe raspberry characteristics on the palate. It is a gorgeous food wine and works well with roast meats, tuna and cheeses.

Excellent Burgundian earthiness. Nice simple red fruits with some great terroir. Perfect pairing for chicken sausage.

As far as the taste, the Tortoise Creek Pinot Noir is…….well……..not as “French” as I would have expected. It definitely has at least one foot in the “New World”, with the bright red cherry and raspberry shining through, in a nice balance to a savory component. The other (foot being in France) shows earthy, forest floor and leathery notes; but they aren’t so overwhelming as to alienate someone looking to step gently into French Pinot from who usually drinks Californian. The Tortoise Creek Pinot Noir remains light-bodied, fruit-forward and gentle on the tannins.

Very light and fruity. Incredibly smooth, with a nice Pinot touch, pairs well with almost anything. Definitely would like to get again, especially for the price.
