Bichot makes a lot of Pinot in Burgundy, but this wine is from two different areas near Limoux in the foothills of the Pyrenees in Languedoc-Roussillon in the south of France. Mixing grapes from these distinct terroirs meant it has to be labelled as a Vin de France. Lighter ruby in color, mostly clear and bright. The nose has cherry cough lozenges, char and slight earthiness. Medium bodied. On the palate, cherries, tart cherries with good acidity. Medium tannins. Nice finish. This is a nice value in (French) Pinot Noir. Drink over the next three to five years. A nice match for Salmon or Chinese food.
