Côte du Rhône L'Esprit Devin 2016 - Domaine Galèvan
A Côtes du Rhône Villages with the beautiful poetic addition L'Esprit Devin. That means roughly that the wine has "a mysterious spirit of prediction", or in sober Dutch "He is promising"! And it is! The grapes grow on limestone-clay soils and consist of 60% Grenache Noir, 20% Mourvèdre and 20% Syrah. Organically grown of course. The fermentation takes place in concrete cuves and the wine is then aged for 15 months in oak barrels. A purple-red wine with a scent of red fruit and raspberry. On the palate we have red and black berries, vanilla, spices, minerality, creamy tannins and a touch of bay leaf and eucalyptus. The Côte du Rhône L'Esprit Devin is intense in flavor and delivers on its promise. Serve with refined but hearty stews, game, a country salad, moussaka or lasagna. Temperature at 16 degrees is fine.
