2019 Domaine Laguerre EOS Rouge
High elevation cool climate vineyard (500 meters), 45 year old vines.
The vines sit on acidic terroir made of gneiss and broken-down granite with some pockets of quartz. Hand harvested, low yields. Natural yeast fermentation, about 20% whole bunch, vinification in concrete tanks, then ageing for 8 months in barrels (old demi-muits and wooden vats). Minimal intervention in the cellar. Low sulphur. Yummy lighter body red filled with blueberries and red cherries on the palate. Elegant and delicious Roussillon red with a few crunchy tannins.
