Coté Obscur “The Dark Side”

24.50

A typical blend of almost century-old Carignan and Cabernet Sauvignon. The vineyard is treated with respect, neither chemicals nor weed killers are tolerated, in order to preserve the biodiversity of the surrounding flora and fauna. The favourable terroir of white limestone pebbles, combined with low yields, gives mineral wines, with a beautiful freshness , and concentrated fruit. Manual harvest in 15 kg crates with severe sorting in the vineyard. 3 weeks pellicular maceration which brings a lot of fullness. We will find the aromatic complexity of Carignan with some notes of pepper and a tannic structure provided by the Cabernet. the tannins are nevertheless very fine. Pair this Coté Obscur wine with beef entrecote, duck skewer and some soft cheese. A real treat! Would recommend to decant this for at least an hour.
