Les Quelles de la Coste, Pinot Noir 2014
(at Les Quelles de la Coste launch, London, 05 Sep 2019)
Drinking Window: 2019 - 2023
The word 'quelles' means 'wells' and this Vaucluse estate has 14 of them, helping to provide perfect conditions for Pinot in an area that's better known for its Mourvèdre and Grenache. Grapes are macerated for 15 days and matured in steel for eight months, giving both depth and freshness to the rounded palate with raspberry and black cherry fruit that become more pronounced on the finish. Sous bois notes give a distinctive local accent to this well made Pinot.
