Villa Noria ‘Infusions’ Blanc de Noirs 2022



Natural blanc de noirs — white wine from red grapes — without the use of sulphites.

Pinot Noir grapes are harvested at night to preserve freshness and avoid any form of oxidation, the grapes gently pressed and only the free run juice used, the skins whipped away before they can impart any colour or tannins. Natural fermentation occurs at low temperatures and without the addition of sulphites or yeast, with ageing on fine lees until bottling without filtration and fining.

Pale gold in colour with a fabulously expressive nose of grilled pineapple and baked apple. Gorgeously minerally and mouth-filling on the palate, flavours of baked apple, smoky mango and candied citrus peel, the wine has a lovely balance between supple roundness and crisp acidity, soft drying tannins but still gorgeously fresh.

Producer: Villa Noria

Founded in 2010, Villa Noria is only a young slip of a thing but as wholesomely ethical, energetic, enthusiastic and innovative as any producer we've come across. It's the vision realised of Cédric Arnaud and Fabien Gross, both acquiring their interest in winemaking from their grandparents and coming together with different but complementing skill-sets, to establish the winery and five areas of vineyards with distinctive and differing terroirs..

Every vineyard is under organic cultivation and adheres to France's high environmental value (HVE) standards, planting disease resistant varieties, promoting biodiversity, protecting water resources and conserving the landscape. The vines, nestled between the Mediterranean Sea and the foothills of the Larzac plateau give elegant wines from the noble grape varieties including Picpoul, Sauvignon Blanc, Clairette, Cinsault, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, and Chardonnay. There's experimentation with natural winemaking and orange wines, and innovation with developing non-alcoholic grape-based drinks that you'd actually choose to drink. We can't wait to see what comes next.
