An absolute trouvaille!
|EAN:||Domaine Alary Principauté d'Orange L'Exclus|
French red wine with the smell of fresh fruit and leather. The taste is smooth and soft. A special rhône, very suitable for cold meats or lightly seasoned dishes.
L'Exclus is a special red wine in the portfolio of the talented vigneron Denis Alary. It concerns an original blend of 50% counoise grapes - the pinot noir of the south - and 50% syrah. In addition, the fruit comes from a vineyard, one half of which qualifies for the prestigious cru-status cairanne and the other half only for land wine. Denis thinks that distinction is ridiculous. According to him, the whole vineyard of cru-level with L'Exclus is living proof. Since the first harvest 2011, this cuvée is very limited available, so a real 'vin de garage'. The grapes ferment and mature just like the cru-wines in large wooden cuves (demi-muids of 600 liters). As a result, the wood influence is nicely dosed. An absolute trouvaille!
