"The 2020 Racine Pinot Noir from Nos Vins du Sud – the Languedocian collaboration between Burgundian Bruno Lafon and Bordelais Francois Chamboissier – comes from high-altitude vineyards between the Pyrenees and the Montagne Noire and is light, fresh, succulent and savoury. It doesn’t have the complexity of Burgundy but nor does it have the price tag, being made to be knocked back and enjoyed, un vrai vin de comptoir."
Jonathan Ray, The Spectator Magazine

Really good and affordable pinot noir from outside Burgundy is now coming into its own with dramatic improvements in viticulture and vinification techniques for this most delicate of grapes. Bruno Lafon's old vine pinot noir from the Languedoc is a perfect example. It is an absolute corker which is not that surprising as this passionate winemaker comes from Burgundy where he learnt his trade.

When I first tasted his 2020 vintage I was overwhelmed by the wonderful deep, rich pinot flavours, complexity and purity which were way above what I was expecting. A joy to taste and to drink for all of us who appreciate good pinot noir.

- Esme Johnstone, Co-Founder of FromVineyardsDirect

How does the wine taste? Customer Reviews (0)
Softly-textured, juicy, crunchy red fruit with just a hint of tobacco leaf and winter spice, this is an eminently drinkable and pleasurable pinot. The best places to produce this delicate grape variety are always on the cool side, and here the altitude of the vineyard and influence from the ocean slow down the ripening season and keep the alcohol levels relatively low and the acidity lively. The result is you'll struggle not to finish the bottle!

"A Pinot from the Languedoc, this has certainly retained freshness and edge in the heat of the south, with only 12.5% alcohol and a crisp, herb and red fruit nose. It's a Pinot in an authentically light- to medium-bodied style, fragrant and staying crisp and refreshing. The antithesis of 'blockbuster', but lovely of its style."
