About the Wine
This fabulous red wine produced by Joseph Mellot is made in the Loire Valley. You won't find this wine stocked in multiple retailers. Available in 75cl bottles, imported by Hatch Mansfield. Val de Loire Joseph Mellot Destinéa Pinot Noir is an inviting wine, made from Sauvignon Blanc grapes. This screwcap wine is created with added sulphites. Like many wines in our list, this wine is suitable for vegan diets. Light and fresh red, a flexible choice to partner with a range of dishes from simple chicken to spicy lamb or beef.
A temperamental thin skinned grape and difficult to grow, when produced of any quality it demands high prices. The thin skin means it's very light in colour body and tannin, it characteristically has searing acidity and full lingering flavours of raspberry, strawberry, cherry, violets and sweet spice.
Most of France enjoyed a long, glorious warm summer, which set wineries up for a great 2018 vintage. A welcome relief from the previous one which was the smallest since World War II.Explore France
