Vieille Monnaie Pinot Noir is great value Pinot with body, ripe fruit flavours and elegance. The warmer climates of the Languedoc lead to a fuller bodied style of wine than Pinot Noir from Burgundy. The aromas of stewed cherries combined with soft, warm palate and balanced, savoury palate with tannic structure adding a layer of herbaceousness and a touch of complexity.
"The original French Franc was released in 1360, to pay the ransom of King John II of France. The coin showed the King astride a horse earning it the name 'Franc à Cheval, or "free on horse". This 'old money' Pinot Noir is a pure expression of the grape and a faithful homage to ancient French winemaking."
