Le Fou translates as ‘The Madman’ and what most French thought the original growers were to plant, cultivate and eventually vinify Pinot Noir from the
South of France, miles from its ancestral home in Burgundy. Le Fou is made in the Vallee de l’Aude, now perhaps France’s most exciting region for
affordable French Pinot Noir. Aude is a larger area that includes some of France’s most famous AOC’s including Corbieries, Fitou and has some great cooler
climate vineyards on the foothills of the Pyrennes where Le Fou is grown.
A luscious, scrumptious Pinot Noir made without oak from the Aude valley offering sweet berry fruit with a savoury twist. With layers of really lovely fruit,
it’s very drinkable and perfect if you’re looking for a riper, fruitier style of Pinot.
