Domaine Pontbriand, 2018
Sumptuous, fruity and concentrated. Hard to believe this is a humble Vin de Pays!
40% Grenache, 40% Caladoc, Syrah 10%, Marselan 10%
|How it's made||
Caladoc is a 1958 cross of Grenache and Malbec which tends to make full-bodied, deeply colored and robust wines. It also has the advantage over Grenache in that it suffers less from coulure. Marselan, a 1961 blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec, brings good depth of color too, appealing aromas and on the palate a structure of supple tannins. Paired with some Grenache, you have the encépagment which makes Domaine Pontbriand.
Beginning with heavily-perfumed aromas tinged with violets, the nose flows into full, round and juicy flavors with a nice savory finish.
Pairs nicely with lamb and sausages.
