Daumen Cotes-du-Rhone 2015 (Rhone Valley, France) "...rich, black fruit, spice..."
This Cotes du Rhone from the owner of Domaine de la Vieille Julienne is made in the same winery and with the same attention to detail as the main wines. The yields are very low at 35hl/ha and the grapes are double sorted before fermentation. This is a very low-sulfured wine at approximately 50mg/L of total SO2.
"Rich vibrant black fruits with a backbone of sturdy but not-harsh tannins. There's a savory, spicy, herbaceous pluck to the wine."
