Editors notes

Both hailing from the same region – Burgundy – Catherine Delaunay and Pinot Noir were destined to get along! With its lovely balance between tautness and roundness, Les Jamelles Pinot Noir is more than appealing!

Endowed with beautiful ruby red colour, Les Jamelles Pinot Noir reveals a nose redolent of berries, floral notes and a delicate hint of oak and vanilla. It boasts gorgeous complexity on the palate. Full-bodied, long and rich, its flavours of crushed raspberry, cherry and jammy plum are supported by well-integrated, rounded tannins. Aromas of red berries and a mineral touch that give it pleasing freshness and well-rounded tannins.

The perfect balance as all things should be!

France

Wine is being produced throughout France and has been done for over 2,500 years with certain Châteaux dating their history back to Roman times, around 6th Century BC. Ranking second in the world in per-capita consumption and first in total production quantity. More so than the overall quantity of wine is the quantity of truly great wines coming out of France makes the nation the envy of wine-making nations worldwide.

Two concepts pivotal to the higher end French wines, in particular, are the idea of 'terroir' and the Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée (AOC) system. Terroir refers to the way the geography, geology and climate find their way into the glass, telling a story of the origin of the wine. The AOC was set up in 1935 and has the primary goal of protecting the authenticity of the wines and the livelihoods of the producers. Appellation rules strictly define which varieties of grapes and winemaking practices are approved for classification in each of France's several hundred geographically defined appellations, which can cover entire regions, individual villages or in some cases, like in Burgundy even specific vineyards.

Classic wine regions in France include Champagne (home of Champagne), Burgundy (Pinot Noir and Chardonnay), Bordeaux (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot), Alsace (Aromatic varietals), Loire Valley (Chenin Blanc, Crémant) and the Rhône Valley (Syrah, Grenache Mourvedre)

The Bordeaux classification of 1855 is still in use, as is the Sauternes and Barsac Classification of the same year. Wines from certain regions can be bought En Primeur, which is when the wine is sold prior to it being bottled.

France Multi Regional

France produces massive amounts of wines across many regions and in a wide array of styles. Many of these wines are subject to very stringent wine laws – both at a local and national level – that put restrictions on the sourcing of fruit for wines, levels and amounts of fruit and wine for blending, and even allowable grape varieties in wines and blends. There are three geographical indications (GIs) that are common to all of the wine regions in France: Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) wines, Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) wines, and Vin de France. The French term for PDO wines is Appellation d'origine protégée (AOP) and for PDI wines is Indication géographique protégée (IGP). Vin de France applies to wines that have no GI.
