Domaine de Mouscaillo Pinot Noir 2016 (IGP Haute Vallée de l’Aude)

The Aude Valley is a wine area located in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of France. Its warm climate with diverse terroir, produces a wide range of wines from both local and international grape varieties. This region is home to many small, familly-run wineries specialize in high-quality wines. An exemple of this is Muscaillo winery (in Roquetaillade) 400 meters above sea level allowing to grow continental varieties such as Pinot Noir.

Visually we found the medium typical opacity of the Black Pinot, with a meniscus beginning to evolve logically. Uncorked six years after the harvest. A varietal nose for the fruits of the forest accompanied by evolving herbal and truffle notes. A dry and fruity entry into the mouth. Light, smooth and easy to drink development without losing volume (13.5% vol). Fruit at its point of maturity on a spicy and gunpowder background as mouth-aromas. Final where there is still freshness and a sweet tannin.

A vintage that we uncorked in 2022 since we couldn't wait much longer. Try recent vintages of this cuvée to experience all the fruitiness of Muscaillo's southern Pinot Noir. This product is valued around 14 euros. This blog also talked about their Limoux blanc, another great wine. To pair this Pinot Noir you can opt for a Poultry low temperature cooking; polenta (siphon, fried polenta); poultry jus with pepper and Porto, glazed carrot; caramelized onion; fried wilt.
