In a nutshell: A wonderfully good value Pinot Noir from the South France which is tasty, full and quite expressive.
The lowdown: Its name 'Le Fou' which means madman in French is derived from the thought that only that type of person would try to make good Pinot Noir in the sun baked south of France. However, we can report that this excellent and good value number gives the lie to that notion. The grapes for this are picked at optimum ripeness then vinified at cool temperature to retain the all the fresh fruit flavours. No oak was used to keep it all as pure and sensual as possible. Probably a bit fuller than Burgundy Pinot Noir it has a warm rich nose with aromas of cherry compote and a palate which is well balanced with a mouthwatering savoury streak provided by the ripe, tasty tannins.
When to drink: Great served slightly chilled it matches well with things like grilled lamb, cold meats and mushroom risotto.
