Domaine Pietri-Geraud Blanc l'Écume Collioure 2008

Member Review by Zhoo Zhoo:

Leon Stolarski Fine Wines says: Complex aromas combining honey, apple and citrus. Smoky, floral and liquorice notes add yet more dimensions to another complex wine. The palate is again rich and savoury, full of fruit and still with that lovely streak of citrus acidity and minerality. The oak tannins from the barrel fermentation add yet more depth and complexity. An extremely elegant wine, there is layer upon layer of interest here, which can only be enhanced by another year or two in bottle, although it is already drinking really well. Another brilliant wine from Laeticia Pietri and a Gold Medal winner at the 2010 Paris Show.

Domaine Piétri-Géraud:
Laetitia Piétri makes great Collioure and Banyuls wines in her incredibly small and cramped cellar in the middle of the delightful and bustling town of Collioure. Harvest time must be a bit of a nightmare for this town-centre winery, with the narrow, hilly streets still thronged with tourists – and the vineyards high up in the hills above the town.

Laetitia Piétri makes great Collioure and Banyuls wines in her incredibly small and cramped cellar in the middle of the delightful and bustling town of Collioure. Harvest time must be a bit of a nightmare for this town-centre winery, with the narrow, hilly streets still thronged with tourists – and the vineyards high up in the hills above the town. This is the southern-most wine region in Roussillon (with the Spanish border just a few kilometres away) and the vineyards are set in stunning scenery, at the point where the Pyrenées tumble into the Mediterranean. Everywhere you look, vines are planted into the hillsides, up to an altitude of several hundred metres. The terroir is a mix of the soil and the sea, with the maritime influence very definitely making its mark on the wines. Laetitia is the fifth generation of her family to tend their 30 hectares of Collioure and Banyuls, alongside her still active mother Maguy. Their vineyards are on steep terraces, dotted around the hills of Collioure, Banyuls and Port Vendres where slate soils support very old Grenache and Carignan, with more recent plantings of Syrah and Mourvèdre. A selection of dry red and white wines are made, along with several different cuvees of sweet Banyuls. Both the “standard” red and white Collioures have recently won gold medals at the Paris Wine Show. Pietri-Geraud is definitely another name to watch in this region. Read less
