Food Matching

A good all-purpose red, you can serve this at a party or informal dinner party. While it can take on all kinds of meat, game and meaty fish such as salmon, keep preparations simple and not too salty or spicy. In their book The Simple Art of Marrying Food and Wine, Malcolm Gluck and Mark Hix suggest pairing it with carrot and cumin salad or lamb baked in hay with lavender.

Wine tasting notes

Re 2006. This wine shines with a nice pale purple-red colour. Forest strawberries, herbes de Provence and cherries pair with bright acidity and supple tannins. Hints of licorice and plums linger on the finale. It is fresh and supple with elegant tannins. Enjoy this wine over the next few years.

Anthony Gismondi - "Fragrant ripe raspberry, cherry jam forest and wet moss notes open this pinot noir, from negotiant powerhouse Maison Louis Latour. The departmental Var IGP has replaced the previous Vin de Pays du Var denomination on the southern coast of France. The promising nose doesn't extend through to the finish. Ripe raspberry and bing cherry lead the clipped palate, along with tight tannins and rhubarb tartness. Finish is short and cranberry tangy; pair with lox and bagels for best effect."
