Mas Bruguière, l'Arbouse, Pic Saint Loup, France
This Domain which extends over twenty hectares is a family story because seven generations have succeeded each other in this vineyard located at the foot of Pic Saint Loup. The vineyard has turned to Organic Agriculture. Thus, no chemical input is added to the wine in order to bring out the characteristics of the terroir during the tasting. In addition, red wines are not filtered.
60% Syrah and 40% Grenache
Very open and highly aromatic on the nose, reminiscent of a piece of fresh fruit, with some fine smoky elements adding to the aromas of ripe black fruits – blackberries, blackcurrants and bilberries. This is a balanced, ripe and silky wine, but the minerality of the terroir and the fruit itself shine through, making it amazingly drinkable. Although the tannins are clearly present, they combine beautifully with the fruit on the palate. Unfiltered wine.
Grapes destemmed, vatted by gravity, juice extracted gently through “pigeages.” Naturally occurring yeast and low sulfites. Grenache is maturing in concrete vat and Syrah is maturing in oak barrels for 12 months.
Great with charcuterie, grilled meat and roast poultry, it is also the perfect accompaniment for: beef cheek cooked with carrots, oeufs en meurette, poulet Basquaise, rabbit with prunes, Duck breast with cherries.
