14/12/2020 – La Belle Angèle Pinot Noir 2019

(2020) A 'Vin de France' so grapes could come from multiple regions, though I supect this is Languedoc fruit, the grapes "grown in clay-limestone soils in vineyards with dry and sunny exposures."  The result is a raspberry and violet-scented wine that is certainly fruit-forward and inviting, a nice little touch of herby, twiggy character in the background. In the mouth it is light-bodied and flooded with more of that sweet summer berry fruit, but there's good balance thanks to cherry-pit acidity and just enough of a tugging stripe of tannin. Note, this is on offer at just £6.99 at time of review, and that is the target price: the headline price of £10.99 is too much to pay. Watch the video for more information.
