Truchard Carneros Pinot Noir
£29.99

Rich aromas of ripe plum, rhubarb, and wild strawberry; with notes of citrus blossom, pomegranate, and earth. The mouth is silky; with bright flavours of pie cherries, cranberry, and sweet vanilla. Firm acidity and delicate tannins focus the palate and provide a lingering finish of spice and red fruit.

Description

Details

The original Truchard winery was not in California but in Texas. Founded in 1887 by French brothers Jean-Marie and Anthony Truchard it lasted until the 1920s when Prohibition dried up all the sales.

The winemaking gene then skipped a generation, resurfacing in the 1970s with Jean-Marie’s grandson, Tony. Stationed in California during the Korean War, Tony decided to follow in his grandfather’s footsteps by buying 20 hectares of vines in Carneros. Over the last four decades, Tony has expanded the estate to some 280 hectares of vines and has constantly championed his region’s wines.

It took until 1989 for the family to release wine under its own label, but the Truchards haven’t looked back since and are now regarded as one of the very best producers in the region.
