Côtes du Ventoux Auro Rousso 2017 - Domaine Les Terrasses d'Eole
Auro Rousso is the second most powerful red wine in Saurel's family of Provençal winds. A wind that comes almost directly from the east and fights with the rising sun.... Part of the harvest is pressed and only its juice is collected. Another part goes into fermentation with the skin, stems and all. The result is power and flavor that is enhanced by lagering in oak barrels for a year. Only then does a selection of the best barrels take place and Stèphane blends his top wine. The Syrah (80%) and Grenache (20%) give a glowing glass with a reddish-black color. In the nose you will find (really) a scent of banana, chocolate, a hint of tobacco, leather which as a taste also comes back in the mouth. The finish is unprecedentedly long. The result is a beautiful Auro Rousso that tastes good now, but in a few years time it will also taste good! Not to mention the lump of a bottle the wine is bottled in.....! That is beyond description (sorry). You just have to look at and touch that bottle! Serve at 17 to 18 degrees.
