La Maison Lafon, Vignes Hautes Pinot Noir 2020, Vin de France, Rouge, 2020

Bruno Lafon believes his wines should first express the utmost respect for the primary material … site, soil and vines. His grapes are produced from single or at the most two organic or converting to organic vineyard sites, where the grapes are hand-harvested from vineyards of our own or our close neighbors, with whom we share the ethics of work well done.
La Maison Lafon series of wines reflect the inspiration of the vintage and times. Each series is uniquely personal and will change periodically inspir

Tasting notes

Aromatic notes of cassis and hints of leather blend with rosemary and other herbaceous notes of the garrigue. Grenache Noir imparts a subtle elegant expression of mixed spice, violets, and fresh plums. Syrah imparts silky, fine tannins on the palate. Carignan lends our elegant wine freshness and an opulent garnet colour.
This red blend of Syrah, Grenache and Carignan fills the mouth without being heavy indeed the palate is fine and rich with soft tannins and a lovely lingering mouthfeel.

Food and wine pairings

The opulence of our beautiful flagship La Maison Lafon pairs exceptionally well with a slow roast rosemary lamb served with a pomegranate jus will round off the pairing beautifully.
