Château de l'Ou, Secret de Schistes, Côtes Catalanes, France
Created in 1998 from the meeting of an oenologist and an agronomist, this 40-hectare estate located in Roussillon, has been converted to organic from the start to in particular offer us refined and elegant Syrah acclaimed by the greatest critics worldwide. Small cuvées to discover absolutely.
Cassis, chocolate, licorice, smoked herbs, and ample minerality all emerge from this full-bodied, sexy beauty that just begs to be drunk. Possessing ripe tannin, a stacked mid-palate and a great finish, it will be better in a year or two and keep for a decade.
The grapes are carefully checked on a sorting table. The alcoholic and malolactic fermentations are done in the French oak barrel. This wine is maturing for 14 months in a barrel to bring structure and complexity to the wine.
Roasts, blue cheese, gourmet salads (giblets, liver), chocolate desserts, etc.
