Product description

COUNTRY: France REGION: Languedoc-Roussillon SUB REGION: Languedoc-Roussillon APPELLATION/AVA: Minervois AOC ESTATE GROWN WINE: Yes VINEYARD DESIGNATION: Laguzelle GRAPE(S): Cinsault / Syrah / Carignan TYPE: Wine - Red BOTTLE SIZE: 750 ml ALC BY VOL(%): 12.5 VITICULTURE: Certified Organic SOIL TYPE: Schist, clay, limestone, sand and marne Winemaking Notes: The Taillandier Laguzelle is a chuggable, chillable red made from 30-year-old vines of Cinsault, Syrah and Carignan, which are grown on schist, clay, limestone, sand and marne. The native yeast fermentation is natural with 6 months of aging in stainless steel and only 10mg/l of sulfites added at bottling. The wine is neither fined nor filtered. Tasting Notes: Laguzelle shows fresh aromas of dried herbs, luscious black fruit (red plum and blackberry), warm spices and a hint of black pepper. It is lively, fresh and lower in alcohol than the typical wines of Minervois in part because harvest is 1-2 weeks before other producers.
