Côte du Rhône Rouge L'Esprit Devin 2016 - Domaine Galèvan
A Côte du Rhône Rouge Villages with the lovely poetic addition L'Esprit Devin. That roughly means that the wine has "a mysterious predictive spirit", or in sober Dutch "He is promising"! And it is! Grown on limestone-clay soil, the grapes comprise 60% Grenache Noir, 20% Mourvèdre and 20% Syrah. Organically grown, of course. Fermentation takes place in concrete cuves and the wine is then aged in oak barrels for 15 months. 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 hint of bay leaf and eucalyptus. The Côte du Rhône Rouge L'Esprit Devin is intense in flavour and delivers on its promise. Serve with refined but hearty stews, game, a peasant salad, moussaka or lasagne. Temperature at 16 degrees is fine.
