Pinot Noir is actually the widest planted grape variety in Switzerland and references to its cultivation appear under various names (such as Blauburgunder and Klävner) as far back as the 15th Century. Cave de la Côte was founded in 1929 and is the most important co-operative in the ‘La Côte’ region, which lies in the mountains on the northern edge of Lake Geneva. Since 2003, it has been overseen by Chilean Oenologist, Rodrigo Banto, who has totally revitalised production during his time with the group.

Grown at altitudes of between 370m and 450m, this attractive and delicate Pinot Noir has lashings of vibrant wild strawberries, redcurrants and raspberries on the nose and even more red berry fruit on the palate. The mountain freshness indicative of wines produced at height is accompanied by a pleasing earthiness (reminiscent of classic Burgundian Pinots), forest floor and bramble fruit. Easy drinking, but definitely worth decanting to really get it to its most expressive potential. With well-integrated tannins and a pleasing acidity, this would make a delicious match to feathered game dishes (especially duck or pheasant), traditional pâtés or a selection of charcuterie and flavoursome fresh cheeses.
