La Vierge Pinot Noir
La Vierge celebrates women
14 August 2012 by La Vierge
At La Vierge we celebrate women's month with the feminine Pinot Noir grape. To maintain her youthful elegant light to medium body, she loves moderate warm days and cool nights.
But make no mistake, although she has a delicate skin, she is no push-over and does not conform easily, she is in high demand in her social circle.
With her style she is most suited in the company of Champagne and much talked about in high society; Jancis Robinson (a world renowned wine writer) calls her the "minx of a vine", Andre Tchelischeff (internationally acclaimed winemaker) declared that "God made Cabernet Sauvignon whereas the devil made Pinot noir" and Joel Fleischman (Vanity Fair) boasts her to be "the most romantic of wines, with so voluptuous a perfume, so sweet an edge, and so powerful a punch that, like falling in love, they make the blood run hot and the soul wax embarrassingly poetic."
Whether a mystical pagan goddess of feminine power such as Isis, or the Catholic Virgin Mary with a darker complexion (as reflected in statues and paintings around the world), the Black Madonna is an apt name for our
feminine delicate . La Vierge Noir
Cheers to all the women in our lives!
