Le Pas Rouge is a red wine crunchy, with notes spicy, red fruits, fresh and floral. A red wine to drink with friends for the pleasure of wine and life. Somewhat our Pinot Noir.

It would perfectly pair with a roast pork « Orloff style », a royal couscous or a poultry stuffed with prunes.

Ideal serving temperature : 14 to 16°C

The name of this wine, “Le Pas Rouge”, is the name of the plot “Clos du Pas” and the color of the wine. In French, the name is a contradiction because Pas rouge = not red.
