Domaine Plaisance Penavayre
Plaisance "Le Pitchou" 2018 Fronton AOP
Case of 12 bottles.
Made from 70% Négrette and 30% Syrah, handpicked from very low yielding vines (~30 Hl/Ha) from estate vineyards on some of the highest terraces of Tarn, in southwest France.
Fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled, stainless-steel tanks. Only natural yeasts present on the skin of the grapes at the time of the harvest are used to respect the typicity of the terroir and the grape. Each grape variety is vinified separately, and after the second racking the wines are put in barrels - 3rd and 4th passage to preserve the fruit. After about 18 months the blend is made and wine is bottled (unfined and unfiltered). Alc./vol.: 13.0%..
Tasting note: Deep ruby/purple colour. Complex aromas and flavours of red fruits (raspberry and wild strawberry), plum and cassis, with spicy/black pepper notes. Medium-bodied, dry, good acidity, firm tannins, well balanced, with a long, finish.
Pairings: Enjoy with grilled/braised meats, Cassoulet, and earthy-style vegetable dishes.
