L'Esprit de Provence Red

Regular price €12,00

Tax included.

Our Esprit 2019 is a flattering, aromatic, exuberant wine. Worthy ambassador of the red wines of Provence, it offers a rich aromatic palette, and a supple texture in the mouth which make it a friendly wine, a wine from the South a wine that speaks of Provence!

The 2019 vintage had a mild and pleasant winter, an early spring followed by a hot and very dry summer, which caused a blockage in the physiology of the vine. It therefore took patience to wait for the grapes to fully ripen. Small yields but strong potential for the harvest.
Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon.
Intense ruby color with hints of garnet. Very intense and complex nose with notes of ripe fruit (blueberry, blackcurrant). On the palate, the attack is round and supple. Sweet spice aromas harmoniously accompany fine and structured tannins. Notes of black fruits and a peppery and spicy touch complete a long and velvety mouthfeel. This 2019 is a generous and refined wine that can be enjoyed now by decanting it, or to be forgotten in the cellar for a few years.
Prime rib in a salt crust, braised lamb, mushroom-based dishes, tomato stew.

Esprit de Provence

A fine vintage in the southern vineyards.

This wine is complete, combining the seduction of Syrah with the structure of Cabernet Sauvignon.

Darkly fragrant. Dry and spicy, fresh dry thyme blowing through toasty black fruit. A touch of vanilla. Good balance and good polish on those tannins.
Score: 16.

Eye: intense black cherry. Nose: concentrated, graphite, undergrowth, blackcurrant, ripe red fruits, notes of pepper, menthol note, finesse. Palate: frank attack, amplitude and power with a nice plot of tight and solid tannins. Conclusion: a wine of high potential, built around Cabernet Sauvignon and which must absolutely wait; For the game. A very good success.
