Les Plants Nobles

Production area

The Pinot Noir grapes, grown in specific vineyards on clay-limestone soils along the Mediterranean coast, are subjected to a wide temperature range. As a result, they benefit from very favourable conditions for reaching full ripeness and expressing all the richness of the grape variety.


This range of easy-drinking wines, pays tribute to the great noble French varietals and especially to the roots of Ropiteau Frères.


100% Pinot Noir

Tasting notes

COLOUR: Light and elegant raspberry pink.
NOSE: Aromas of fresh red fruit (raspberry, strawberry), citrus notes (grapefruit, tangerine) and a hint of English candy.
PALATE: Elegant, balanced, structured and fresh, with a clean, supple attack, an unctuous character and a slight sensation of sweetness.

Vinification and maturing

Harvested by night at optimum maturity, in order to keep all the freshness and obtain nice colour and intensity aromas, the Pinot Noir grapes were directly pressed at their arrival at the winery. Then, the press juice went through a static settling at low temperature (14-16°C / 57-60°F) for a gentle fermentation and conservation of the fine fruity aromas. Sowing of aromatic selected yeasts was then followed by a fermentation at 18°C (64°F) with micro-ventilation. Once the malolactic fermentation was complete, the wine was racked and aged on fine lies, which were regularly stirred (kept in suspension).

Food and wine pairing
