2015 Saint-Chinian "Les Schistes" (Borie La Vitarèle, Domaine)

Domaine Borie La Vitarèle, Saint Chinian "Les Schistes", Languedoc, France 2015

{sustainable} 50% Grenache, 45% Syrah, 5% Carignan

DENSE VIOLET FRUIT, LUSCIOUS MINERAL & EARTH, MEDITERRANEAN SPICE

This special cuvée from Cathy Izarn is a testament to the synergy that she has encouraged between her land, vines, and work-intensive, fiercely naturalistic methods. Bursting with black raspberry and succulent baked strawberry, this powerfully ripe monolith of fruit is marbled with the complexities of chalky earth (from which the wine's name is derived), exotic mediterranean spices, and a touch of oaken vanilla richness. Vive le Languedoc!

Serving Suggestion: Braised whole duck w/ prunes, rosemary, & thyme. Dense, Danish toast w/ ricotta & fresh black figs.
