vin de france wines pinot noir accord mets vins

Which is your favorite grape variety (grape)?
To experience the flavors of a specific variety, I chose the legendary Pinot Noir!
The experience of discovering 5 Pinot de France (2019 & 2020) is absolutely thrilling.
The purity and depth of the fruit is common to the 5 vintages.
The 5 Pinots are young but have their own character and creativity.

Methodology: I first thought of agreements that seemed to me to be straightforward.
Each dish has then been refined to create a perfectly pairing with the notes and profile of each cuvée.

Robe : Grenat profond
Nez : Fruits noires gourmands, épices douces 
Bouche : Un délice !!! Explosion de cerises !!! Rondeur et gourmandise + notes de cacao et une légère fraîcheur de menthe douce.
Finale : Fruits et grué de cacao

  1. Ça donne faim tout ça ! Étant également amatrice de pinot noir c’est super intéressant de découvrir différents vignerons de France.

  2. Karin comme à ton habitude des photos splendides qui cassent le côté un peu désuet de vin de France. Tu donnes envie de découvrir ta sélection de pinot noir.

  3. French pinot noir is my favourite. I thought it was Burgundy wine. Now I want to taste pinot noir from all the other regions of France !

    • Yes Pinot Noir is often associated to Burgundy. I read that Lucius Junius Moderatus Columella an agriculture writer of the Roman empire, wrote about a grape variety (looking like Pinot noir in Burgundy) in the 1st century !!! But Pinot Noir de France can be found all around France, which makes different styles of wine !!! Those 5 wines are great introductions to Pinot de France discovery !

  4. Thank you so much Karen for all those amazing pairings and crazy cool photos. Is grape variety + de france the correct way to say ? Is it to distinguish it from other countries wines or grapes ?

    • Thank you !!! Your question is very interesting ! I can’t reply by a simple yes. As usual in wine & France, the answer is more complexe than that.
      Vin De France is a designation, a national classification, created in 2009 in Europe. Vin De France is different from other designations like AOP/PDO or AOC/PGI as allowing wine makers to create blend with finest grapes from different parts of France.
      It is like their place of freedom to make different wines focusing on aromas. And the advantage is that they are often accessible and easy to drink and understand wines.
      So for example a Pinot Noir de France will be a Pinot Noir from France & a grape you will find in Vin de France wines. I hope it is clear enough. You can visit their website. It is full on informations and ideas.
