This wine opens up on a strong nose of red fruits like ripe cherries. Round, full-bodied and fruity on the palate, with a pleasent tannic structure.
Food and wine pairing : preferably drunk between 15 and 16 ° C (slightly cool), it is a relaxed wine, ideal for summer barbecues, pork chops but also with Marengo veal and osso bucco.

Rouge comme Renard Pinot Noir
A.O.C. (French quality wines)
Type : Red wine
Sweetness : 1
The vineyard is located at the top of the Kirchberg Grand Cru area (but Pinot Noir does not enter into the Grand Cru Appellation.) The soil is composed of marl-limestone with touches of sandstone.
Comment for the 2018 vintage : This wine has aged in Burgundy barrels for almost a year. The robe is deep purple. The nose opens on black and sour cherries aromas with delicate smoky notes. The palate is silky and full and tannins fade slowly . It is a complex wine gifted with a nice tension.
Food and wine pairing :
Preferably drunk between 15 and 16 ° C (slightly cool), this wine perfectly matches the humus notes of morels found aside a pork filet mignon (with morels!); it is also great with thyme lamb chops, kidneys or pan-fried veal liver.
Best consumed : between 15 and 20 years
