Additional Information on La Villette Pinot Noir 2015

Winery La Villette

Varietal: Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir grapes have been cultivated in and around the Burgundy region of France for centuries, where they have long been favored by vintners for their wide range of flavors, their thin skins and for producing wines which have light, smooth tannins, and a beautiful garnet red color Whilst they remain one of the flagship varietals of this special region, their wide popularity and recent status as a fashionable 'romantic' varietal has led to them being planted in almost every wine producing country in the world. However, the Pinot Noir demands a huge amount of care and attention from the wineries that wish to grow it, as this varietal is particularly susceptible to various forms of mildew and rot. Despite this, the grape is otherwise a favorite with wineries for the fact that it requires little extra effort once it begins fermentation. Pinot Noir is also widely known for producing some of the world's most famous sparkling wines, being one of two key grapes for the production of Champagne, and several other sparkling varieties.

Region: Provence

The region of Provence is known throughout the world as being the home of delicious flavors, evocative rolling landscapes, and a dedication to tradition and the quiet life unmatched by anywhere else in France. Such things apply wholeheartedly to the wine industry of the region, too, and Provence has held a reputation for excellence in viticulture which stretches back over thousands of years. Indeed, Provence is widely understood to be amongst the oldest wine regions in the world, with Greeks, Gauls and Pheonicians all understood to have cultivated vines there over the centuries. Today, Provence is most renowned for its superb rosé wines, of which there are many. Indeed, rosé wine make up for over sixty percent of the wines of Provence, with red and white varieties made in smaller quantities, but with the same meticulous attention to detail, tradition and brilliance.

Country: France

It is widely understood and accepted that the finest wines in the world come out of France. Whether you are drinking a vintage bottle from one of the famed Grand Cru wineries of Bordeaux - such as Chateau Margaux or Chateau Lafite-Rothschild - or a more simple and affordable bottle from one of the lesser known appellations in Burgundy, the likelihood is that the wine is packed full of intense and interesting flavors, and has a fine, balanced structure typical of almost all French produce. This reputation for excellence is taken extremely serious by the French, with dozens of regularly updated laws and regulations ensuring the quality and accurate labeling of wines. Such dedication and passion for fine wine, representative of the region in which it is produced, means customers can be assured that when they buy a bottle from France, they are buying something almost certain to please and delight.
