La Cosmique Pinot Noir 2016
Grape Varietal: 100% Pinot Noir
La Cosmique hails from the artisanal, family-owned Maison Nicolas Vins, which is based in the heart of the southern Rhône valley, in the roman city of Orange. The chardonnay and pinot noir grapes that are selected to curate La Cosmique are grown in a warmer climate embedded in a terroir made up of clay and limestone soil. Due to the warmer temperatures in the region and the frequent mistral winds, the grapes are harvested during the cool nights to maintain freshness. By delicately coaxing out the best elements of the terroir, the climate of the Rhône valley, and the delicacy of the varietals used, La Cosmique offers wines with unique characteristics that perfectly represent the new Rhône generation.
La Cosmique Pinot Noir is fresh and fruit forward and appears a bright shade of ruby red. On the nose, the wine offers notes of ripe cherries, raspberries and black pepper. On the palate, it is lively with fresh red fruit and a subtle earthy finish with hints of the Southern Rhone region’s indigenous herbs giving the wine a spicy accent to balance the fruit. Adhering to traditional winemaking practices of the region, La Cosmique Pinot Noir is oaked and fermented with the grape skins to add complexity and richness.
La Cosmique Pinot Noir is the perfect wine to pair with richer poultry dishes such as smoked turkey or duck. Vegetarian dishes such as wild mushrooms and grilled asparagus are a flavorful complement to this wine. La Cosmique Pinot Noir is the perfect wine to end a meal when paired with fresh fruit desserts.
