Villa des Croix Pinot Noir 2017, SO Vignerons (1x 75cl)

SO Vignerons (SV) is a small négociant structure, producing typical, high-quality Languedoc wines. The company was founded by Claude Serra (the "S") and Daniel Orsolini (the "O") in 2005.

Claude, SO Vignerons' winemaker consultant, is also a Professor at Montpellier University of Oenology, and manages the company's viticulture and winemaking.

The philosophy behind So Vignerons is to produce high-quality, modern-style Languedoc wines at very affordable prices. This has been made possible by:

- the long-term contracts signed with their growers;

- having Claude as the winemaker/consultant to all their growers; and

- using a state-of-the-art bottling line.

All SO Vignerons' wines are vinified by Claude and come from vineyards located on specially selected terroirs producing characteristic varietals from the Languedoc region. Their aim is to share their passion for their wines and region and a commitment to preserve the environment.

The Villa Des Croix property is planted with Picpoul, Viognier, Pinot Noir and Terret. SO Vignerons' wines include a number of varietal blends, but the Villa des Croix wines - of which we list three - each adhere to a monovarietal approach.

The soil in the vineyards for the Viognier is siliceous soil of Pyrenean origin. The area also benefits from an oceanic micro-climate.

The grapes are harvested at night, skin contact is allowed for 5 - 6 hours at 10°C. The grapes are pressed using pneumatic pressure. It undergoes thermo-regulated fermentation at 15/17°C after a clean racking of the must. Malolactic fermentation occurs and the wine is matured in tank on fine lees for 6 to 8 months.

The colour of the wine is a clear and pale yellow straw. The aromas evoke intense floral notes, citrus peel, vanilla, tangerine and light honey notes. The palate is fresh, pleasant and deliciously well balanced. The finish is rich and persistent. It can be enjoyed on its own as an aperitif but is a perfect accompaniment to grilled fish and fusion food. If you have good levels of patience, this Viognier can be kept for up to 4 years.
