Belle Glos Las Alturas Pinot Noir 2021: A Journey Through California's Coastal Elegance 


Unveiling a Captivating Californian Pinot Noir

The Belle Glos Las Alturas Pinot Noir 2021 is a captivating expression of California's Santa Lucia Highlands. This prestigious appellation boasts a cool climate and dramatic coastal influence, shaping this Pinot Noir into a wine of remarkable depth and complexity.

A Feast for the Senses: Exploring the Aromas and Flavours

Pour yourself a glass of this captivating Pinot Noir and let the rich crimson colour take centre stage. As you swirl the wine, a symphony of aromas unfolds. Luscious notes of blackberry and black cherry intertwine with hints of fragrant sage and the subtle earthiness of dark chocolate. These initial impressions are further complemented by a touch of peppery spice, adding an intriguing complexity.

On the palate, the Las Alturas Pinot Noir 2021 delivers a truly captivating experience. The wine boasts a rich and bold mouthfeel, brimming with flavours of dark fruit compote. Imagine a delightful medley of boysenberry pie filling, blackcurrant jam, and juicy dark plums, all harmoniously balanced by the subtle warmth of ground nutmeg.

Acidity: The Balancing Act

A hallmark characteristic of exceptional Pinot Noir is its vibrant acidity. The Las Alturas 2021 masterfully showcases this quality. The lively acidity cuts through the richness of the fruit flavours, creating a refreshing and mouth watering sensation that lingers on the finish. This perfect balance ensures the wine remains elegant and food-friendly, avoiding any heaviness.

The Art of Aging: French Oak Imparts Sophistication

The winemakers at Belle Glos have meticulously aged the Las Alturas Pinot Noir 2021 in 100% French oak barrels, with 60% being new oak. This imparts a touch of toasty vanilla and baking spice to the flavour profile, adding another layer of complexity without overwhelming the core fruit character.

Serving Suggestions: Bringing Out the Best

To fully appreciate the brilliance of this Pinot Noir, ensure it's served at a cool room temperature, ideally between 55-60°F (13-15°C). This allows the delicate aromas and flavours to unfurl beautifully. Decanting the wine for 30 minutes before serving can further enhance the experience by softening any tannins and allowing the flavours to breathe.

Food Pairings: A Culinary Symphony

The Belle Glos Las Alturas Pinot Noir 2021 possesses remarkable versatility when it comes to food pairings. Here are some suggestions to create a truly memorable dining experience:

  • Duck and Game Birds: The richness of the wine complements the savoury flavours of duck breast, roast pheasant, or grilled quail.
  • Roasted Vegetables: Earthy root vegetables like roasted parsnips, carrots, and beets find perfect harmony with the vibrant fruit notes and subtle earthiness of the Pinot Noir.
  • Mushroom Risotto: The creamy richness of mushroom risotto is beautifully balanced by the acidity and complexity of the wine.
  • Herb-Crusted Lamb: The herbal notes of the crust create a delightful synergy with the peppery spice and earthy hints in the Pinot Noir.
  • Grilled Salmon with a Cherry Glaze: The sweet and savoury elements of the cherry glaze complement the fruit character of the wine, while the salmon's richness is balanced by its acidity.
