PRODUCT OVERVIEW:
On the Pays d'Oc IGP: "Delving into the subject for this article, I discovered there was much more to IGP Pays d’Oc than I had realized. Rather than being a generic classification characterized by low prices and easy-drinking, varietally-labeled wines, this is an innovative, fast-moving sector with many wines to set the pulses racing. I’ve realized the Pays d’Oc is actually a treasure-trove of fascinating wines and dynamic producers. Pity it took me so long!

First demarcated in 1987 as Vin de Pays d’Oc, the vast scale of the vineyards is striking. Covering four departments (Aude, Gard, Hérault, and Pyrénées-Orientales), the region reaches from the Mediterranean coastline to the mountainous slopes of the Pyrenees and the Massif Central. The region’s size, along with its varied geology and climate, means there is no easily definable style. Yet size isn’t everything. In today’s market, wine needs to be accessible, of good quality, and of good value in order to have a wide global reach. Innovation and variety are other key attributes for interested consumers. In this respect, IGP Pays d’Oc ticks all the boxes. As Natalie Estribeau, director of enology at Vignobles Foncalieu near Carcassonne, explains: ‘The label Pays D'Oc is a guarantee of quality and accessibility.’" (Andy Howard, MW, Decanter Magazine, 7/25/20).

The 2019 Escale Pinot Noir has aromas of raspberries and cherries that follow on the medium-bodied, silky palate. Accents of woodsmoke, pepper, and thyme deliver complexity. Moderate acidity brings balance and a long, satisfying finish.
