Viola Odorata from the Naudin Ferrand winery is a French red wine from three plots in the municipalities of Corgoloin, two “En Vireville” plots and one “En Fontenelles” plot. A Pinot Noir born on clayey-calcareous soils.
In the glass, Naudin Ferrand's Viola Odorata shows bright red reflections and is distinguished by its rich aromas of bitter cherries balanced by woody and toasted notes. In the mouth it is a blend of sweetness, freshness and fleshiness, with melted tannins and moderate acidity
Following the amnual harvest, the grapes are sorted and placed in whole vats for 14 days with some punching down. The wine then matures in 67% new barrels and finally vinified with a minimum dose of sulfur. Naudin's Viola Odorata represents a beautiful expression of its terroir.
