Nostre Païs Red 2018

In 2018 we were blessed with harvest conditions of cool and sunny weather, a perfect Mistral and very little humidity. As a result we brought in perfectly healthy grapes with an ideal maturity. The reds are bursting with fruit, have moderately deep color and extremely silky tannins. The 2018 vintage will be accessible early in a very seductive style.

Appearance

Deep red with violet highlights

Nose

Pure and complex, the black fruit, cherry, and hot stones, are released with a bit of aeration.

Taste

The dense & velvety body fills the palate and reveals notes of cacao, dried herbs and pencil lead. The fresh and fruity finish is heightened by mineral notes and fine tannins.
