When it comes to Value for Money, Domaine Dusseau is hard to beat. Especially the Reserve series (Barrel Aged) gives great fine wines for a very pleasant price.

Located in the south of France, Domaine Dusseau has vineyards spread over different areas in the Pays D'Oc, each with its own climate. The largest part of the grapes is intended for bulk wines, but a limited part and then the best fruit is intended for own bottling where quality is the starting point.

Due to the large area of its own vineyards, Domaine Dusseau has the opportunity to always select the best grapes from the best plots for the wines under its own label.

The vineyards of Domaine Dusseau around Limoux are located in three climatically distinct regions:
- West of Limoux the 'Terroir Océanique' with wines where the acidity dominates.
- Northeast the 'Terroir Méditerranéen' with full-bodied wines.
- South of the 'Terroir Haute Vallée' where the wines clearly have more minerality.

Due to this variation of terroirs, a constant quality can be strived for by adapting the ratio in each blend to the individuality of the harvest year. In fresh years the percentage of 'Méditerranéen' can be increased and in warm years more freshness can be brought into the wine by increasing the proportion of 'Océanique'.

The grapes for the Dusseau Reserve Barrel Aged Pinot Noir are pressed in a pneumatic press after picking, the vinification takes place in steel vats under full temperature control. This Réserve Pinot Noir is aged in French oak, of which 6 months in 1/3 new oak barriques. This Reserve Pinot Noir has a nice fresh ruby red color. Rounder and fruitier than its Burgundy colleague with notes of blackcurrant, licorice and cherry on the nose with a hint of cedar and vanilla. In the mouth the wine is full bodied, slightly spicy but also supple and soft without too many tannins. This is a nice Pinot Noir with good fruit.
