Le Grand Clos Pinot Noir - new Pinot Noir

2014 Le Grand Clos Pinot Noir....$13.99
New Pinot Noir that is rich and full.  Great Value.
Facing the Pyranees, surrounded by vines, speckled with trees and flowers, this privately owned vineyard is delicately nestled among a large pine forest.  Le Grand Clos is located on a hillside village, nearby the world famous walled city of Carcassonne, and is gifted with exceptional climatic conditions and earth with great soil, to produce top quality wines.  Le Grand Clos - Pinot Noir captures senses with immense floral scents including violet and flowering wild thyme.  Raspberry liquorish entices further along with wild strawberry, dark cherries, tobacco and spice.  The palate is juicy but balanced by rich forest floor, clove and savory flavors.  Good tension between acid and fine tannins offers a well rounded palate with appealing length.
