Le Champ des Etoiles is our most popular French Pinot Noir, thanks to its vibrant red-berry flavor and silky-smooth texture. Inspired by its many fans, winemaker Mark Hoddy set out to make a “Super Cuvée” edition, showcasing only the very best Pinot grapes from the south of France. With the aid of his friend and fellow winemaking maestro, Joseph Bousquet, he brought the barrel-aged, complex and oh-so-elegant beauty Le Secret des Etoiles to life.

Why the south of France? Because Burgundy can’t have all the fun. And because the sunny Languedoc region is home to exceptional grapes, if you know where to look. (Lucky for you, Mark has excellent local contacts.) In fact, Wine Spectator recently asked French winemaking iconoclast Michel Chapoutier if the Languedoc was France’s next great region for red wine. His reply: “Oh, I am absolutely certain about that.” It’s no wonder top Burgundy houses like Louis Latour and Bouchard Aîné et Fils have headed south to take advantage.

And with Le Secret des Etoiles, you’ve got inside access, too.

You’ll be greeted with aromas of intensely ripe strawberry, cherry and wild herbs, with touches of toasty vanilla spice from aging in fine Burgundian barrels. The palate is silky and beautifully rounded, overflowing with more red berry flavors—plus an elegant, refreshing finish.

Pinot Noir’s other claim to fame: utter food-friendliness. Its vibrant acidity, delicate texture and earthy/red berry characters are well suited to everything from firmer fish (like tuna steaks) to oven-roasted poultry.
