Pinot Noir Domaine De Coussergues

Pinot Noir Domaine De Coussergues

Ref: A0608217

IGP Pays d'Oc, Montblanc, Languedoc, France

Whilst we have never been that impressed by this estate’s white wines, their Pinot Noir has been a real eye opener. This is not a jammy Pinot as it has an appealing freshness and vivacity that raises it to a serious class. It is quite remarkable value. Vibrant dark ruby colour, the palate is bursting with strawberry and blackberry fruit with a hint of woodiness against a rich earthy backdrop. Good acidity and length. For drinking now. Serve slightly cool.

The Château de Coussergues, a former Royal Manor has been in the Sarret de Coussergues family for thirteen
generations (since 1495). The Manor is located on the southern fringe of the Côtes de Thongue, near the village of Montblanc about ten kilometers east of Beziers on the last group of hills overlooking the Mediterranean sea. The majority of the vineyards lie on the hillsides running down to the coastal plain and are cooled by the maritime breezes coming off the Mediterranean.

The Chateau de Coussergues Winery has over 600 hectares of which 210 have been set aside for vines. It is run by Arnaud de Bertier who, together with his wine-maker Natalie Arnaud (who trained at St. Halletts in the Barossa Valley), understand the importance of low yields for Pinot Noir and have kept production to around 50hl/ha.

They plant an impressive array of different grape varieties here including Chardonnay, Sauvignon and Viognier for white wines and Pinot Noir, Mourvèdre, Syrah, Grenache, Cabernet-Sauvignon, Merlot and Cinsault for the reds.
