A fervent follower of biodynamic practices, Château de Beaucastel produces a powerful, structured Châteauneuf-du-Pape, marked by the strong presence of Mourvèdre. The power of the nose reveals the ripeness of the grapes with nuanced aromas of fruit, meatiness and spice. The mouth has the magnitude of wines of the appellation and adds a powerful structure marked by fine spicy tannins. The 2011 vintage, particularly successful, is no exception to the rule: Château de Beaucastel produces great wines! Succulent with rib of beef or game.
The 2010 Château Lassolle has a beautiful deep ruby colour. Firm and silky tannins give a lot of depth. One discovers a nice long finish supported by a fine bitterness. Grown bio dynamically from old Cabernet Franc it is then aged in Burgundy barrels for 3 years. Pair it with a lightly spiced Moroccan tagine.
This Côte Rôtie wine is composed of 95% Syrah and 5% Viognier. The vines are planted on terraces on a beautiful granite soil of 6 hectares. After a manual harvest, the wine is aged for 30 months in oak barrels. The colour is bright ruby red and the nose is complex with aromas of kirsch, cassis and tobacco. The palate is dense and concentrated with spicy notes. Wonderful with game or red meat.
Domaine de l’Horizon, certified bio-dynamic, is a full and intense wine. While seductive, it offers a fleshy and deliciously fruity, floral and aromatic profile. Vivid, full of life, it is a tribute to the variety of terroirs assembled in this wine. A new wine bound very quickly to become a genuine classic. Well balanced with saddle of lamb or truffled poultry dishes.
The Oriu Torraccia is typical of Corsican red wine. The most beautiful black grapes are harvested to make a pretty well-built biodynamic wine with aromas that are rich and dense, coated with a palatable sweetness. The Oriu is a real Corsican treat and a great pairing with leg of lamb or game.
With its deep red colour, Domaine Peyres Roses’ Syrah Leone offers a great aromatic intricacy including notes of spices, balsamic, cocoa, leather, and truffle. A complex wine capable of being stored to enjoy in several years! The 2005 Syrah Leone has become a quality icon in Languedoc. Would complement a rabbit stew excellently.
Vieilles Vignes is a wine beautifully deep, soft and with a lovely overall harmony. This striking red reflects the quality of work produced in this domaine. A wine that can be enjoyed relatively early and to be paired with shoulder of lamb or a perfectly pink beef wellington.
