2022 AOP Arbois 'La Cabane'

Domaine de la Touraize

Regular price $95 750ml Sale

Ploussard from lieu-dits La Touraize and Curoulet. The vines are 30-50 years old and grow on grey marl. The grapes are de-stemmed carefully by hand, and then placed in a tank and filled with CO2. Macerated for 10 days, wetting the cap every 2-3 days, but without punching down. The grapes are pressed and the juice is blended with the free run wine. After malo in tank, the wine is transferred to old foudre, where it ages for 7 months. Not fined or filtered. Minimal SO2 added before bottling. 12.5% alc.

Light red colour that is vibrant with a hint of brick. Raspberry, decayed roses, mace, red cherry, salt, aniseed and a little charcuterie. Good depth of aromas. Spice builds, with cinnamon, star anise and clove coming to the forefront. Youthful, with crunchy red fruits, a creamy texture and fine tannins. Little savoury twist at the end with some tea and pleasing bitterness. Very easy to drink. Chill a bit, but not too much.
