Reuilly Rouge Les Chênes 2020 - Domaine de Reuilly
The Reuilly Rouge Les Chênes is made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes that come from the four-hectare Les Pierres Plates field. This field lies due south and has a clay-limestone soil. The grapes and wine are grown and processed organically and biodynamically. After harvesting and fermentation, the wine matures for at least a year in a mix of young and older oak barrels. Nice detail is that the oak of these barrels comes from trees that were on the estate's own property! This fine Reuilly Rouge Les Chênes has a ruby colour and smells like the aroma of raspberries, blackcurrant with a pinch of caramel and vanilla. On the palate, the wine is soft, with berry and blackberry, a pinch of woodiness, caramel and tobacco. Nice long finish to conclude and if you serve the wine at 15-17 degrees it goes brilliantly with dishes with winged game, a stuffed portobello, an Asian salad or slightly spicy dish or with reasonably firm cheeses.
