Domaine du Poujol Coteaux du Languedoc Rosé 2008
Robert and Kim Cripps bought Domaine du Poujol in May 1994, after a year off in Burgundy where Robert worked in the cellars in estates such as Meo-Camuzet in Vosne Romanee, Domaine Roulot in Meursault and Clos des Epeneaux in Pommard. Their domaine is situated midway between Pic St Loup and St Georges d’Orques in the Languedoc. They have 18 hectares under vine, of which ten are in AOC Coteaux de Languedoc and the remaining 8 in Vin de Pays. The remainder of the 66 hectare domaine is ‘garrigue’, the southern French name for dense, evergreen shrubs, herbs and wild flowers. The Rosé is AOC Coteaux de Languedoc Rosé. This is striking pink in colour, with perfumes of strawberries and the characteristic rose petal aromas of good Grenache. Vibrant, juicy fruit on the palate and a clean, fresh acidity prevent it becoming cloying and accentuate the hint of cherries on the finish.
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
