WHY WE LOVE THIS WINE
This delicate, very fragrant, medium-bodied Pinot Noir hails from the obscure appellation of Puy De Dome, which is located in the Auvergne in central France. Fresh herbal notes of tarragon and fennel frond emanate from the glass and lead into a fresh, juicy, super inviting wine displaying deep red cherry fruit, crushed minerals and excellent complexity.

ABOUT THE WINERY

Cave Saint-Verny is a co-op in the département of Puy-de-Dôme in the Auvergne, in the far north east of France’s Massif Central. Auvergne has a long wine growing tradition that dates back to Roman and Gallic times. Saint-Verny is a small, highly dedicated, 65-grower cooperative that worked diligently to establish AOC status for Cotes d’Auvergne in 2011. Prior to recognizing its independent AOC status, the area was considered an extension of the Loire Valley, and its unique soil and topographical attributes had not been formally recognized. The vineyards stretch across 170 hectares from Riom in the north to Issoire in the south.
