Category: Red, full-bodied, earthy and black fruits.

 

If you like: Think full-bodied but approchable red wine, quiet natural winemaking and gentle oak. A must try, that can change people mind about Bordeaux!

 

Taste like: 2008 is a classic Bordeaux vintage. Rich and concentrate with vibrant acidity and balance tannin structure with black fruits, earthy notes and violet. After 10 years this approchable vibrant wine displays delicious texture and mouthfeel. As always this Domaine de  l'A from lo yield is never exuberant but definetly charming. The tannins are fine and chalky with a signature long finish.

 

Area: Côtes de Castillon (Bordeaux, right bank down the road from the plateau of Saint Emilion)

Farming: Organic and Biodynamic, Natural winemaking.

Grapes: Merlot (70%), Cabernet Franc (30%)

Serving suggestions: 30 minutes decanting will be just perfect.

Occasion: Chilling reading a book, listening some energetic rock 'n' roll from the sixties or old-school hip-hop. 

Food match: Very versatile with food this wine will be great with grilled red meat or a stew with vegetable and herbs. 

Estimated cellaring potential: 10 to 15 years.
