2016 Mas Bres Pinot Noir, Cévennes
On paper, this wine doesn’t make much sense – Pinot Noir outside of Burgundy rarely impresses. But this organicallygrown, summer berry-soaked, refreshingly balanced red is a shockingly good wine. As an inexpensive Pinot it’s peerless, but as an elite ‘house red’ it performs at the highest level for every palate and dish. Most people plump for hearty Rioja, Malbec or a Côtes-du-Rhône as their all-purpose red, but these styles are often too forceful for most dishes. Mas Bres is perfect in every respect.
HH&C`s tasting note: We have shipped this lovely, organic Pinot Noir from the Cévennes in past years – the 2016 has again captured our admiration for its perfumed, brightly fruity style. The aromas combine ripe red berries with freshly cut herbs, the palate being juicy and refreshing.This is sold as a case of 12 bottles. Price includes delivery to the UK mainland.
