Pinot Noir Précoce (the French for "Precocious") evolved from Pinot Noir to ripen much earlier, making it the perfect red grape for England's cooler climate.
This wine is made in the Beaujolais technique, but gains complexity from the Pinot Noir. It is light and fruity, with low tannins and is incredibly drinkable. One of our favourite English reds.
The wine is full of cherry fruit with an underlying spice and earthiness and soft and smooth on the palate. It has slightly more body than the 2018 and a very long, complex finish and pairs well with duck, poultry or even meatier fish like tuna or salmon.
Grape: Pinot Noir
