Pinot Noir is generally associated with cool-climate vineyards, yet the grapes for this wine come from the Aude Valley in the Southern Languedoc.  It is for this reason that the wine is called ‘Le Fou’ which translates as ‘The Madman’, as it has long been thought only a madman would try to produce the perfect Pinot Noir in the Languedoc. Producer Erik Monnin is anything but a fool, and his quest to find producers that have hidden gems led him to this Southern French Pinot Noir that other would have fooloshly overlooked without further investigation. He visits domaines, seeks out new parcels as well as counselling winemakers before the harvest; his commitment can be described as nothing short of obsessive. In order to produce the wine I’ve put in this month’s case Erik Pinot Noir grapes picked at optimum ripeness, vinified without the use of oak, he has produced a wine that I think proves the doubters wrong and stands as proof that it can be done.
