Pas De Probleme Pinot Noir 2020 - Languedoc-Roussillon, France
Varietals: 100% Pinot Noir
An informal French expression that can be used to shrug off an apology or potential problem,
Pas de Problème is the answer to the problem of finding a casual, affordable, highly drinkable Pinot Noir.
Pas de Problème Pinot Noir is driven by aromatic notes of raspberry, red-currant, and wild strawberry, with a nuance of mocha and spices, silky tannins, and a delicate texture.
Pas de Problème is sourced from vineyards in the Languedoc region, specifically the ancient hill-town of Enserune (15 mins southwest of Béziers). There, 30-year-old Pinot Noir vines are planted on southward-facing slopes of clay and limestone. The soil here resembles the famous ones found in Burgundy, guaranteeing optimal growth for this variety, with an emphasis on balance and minerality. Located 20 mins away from the Mediterranean Sea, the vines endure both oceanic and continental influence; hot days allow for sublime ripeness, while frigid nights help to preserve the natural freshness of the grapes. Spontaneous fermentation, aged in stainless steel for 9 months, unfined and unfiltered.
