Le Petit Cochonnet

Vin de France Rouge

Wine Type: Red Wine

Country: France

Region: Vin de France

Grapes: Grenache, Syrah, & Mourvedre

Tasting Notes: Beautiful deep red in color. On the palate it poses complexity and intensity, with notes of raspberry, blackcurrant, and cinnamon.

Food Pairings: Pair this French red with pork chops, braised meats, and cheeses.

Winemaking: After harvest there is skin maceration for 2 weeks. Alcoholic fermentation is traditional and made in stainless steel tanks. Stabilized in concrete vats.

James Suckling: “This youthful southern red has plenty of red fruit and the slightly sappy tannins accentuate the freshness on the medium-bodied palate. Good length. Drink now. Screw cap.”

International Wine Report: “The 2020 ‘The Best Part’ Vin de France Rouge begins with aromas of black raspberries and dark cherries that are joined by spices, lavender, wild herbs and hints of chocolate all coming together. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, silky tannins and notable acidity that persists all the way through the finish. This is a very approachable wine that is drinking nicely on the young side.”
