Esprit du Sud Rouge Languedoc 2008
GILLES LOUVET produces wines exclusively from organically grown grapes. His production methods are designed to respect the environment and natural habitats. In 1993, Gilles Louvet, grandson of a winegrower, became aware of the harmful effects of using chemical in the vineyards and switched to organic agriculture. Gilles Louvet chooses his grapes with care from vines nestled in the foothills of the “Montagne Noire”, a location which allows them to reach the peak of ripeness. His expertise in maturing and blending completes the process, to bring you this Syrah, Grenache and Carignan blending which is expressive, complex and packed with flavours that evoke the subtle charms of the Languedoc.
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
This wine has a nice deep ruby colour. On the nose you get some ripe red fruits and caramelised dark fruit. The attack is supple and fruity then a good complexity on the mid palate with some darker red fruits and spiciness, the finish is long and silky. Serving suggestions: at 59-62°F, an ideal accompaniment for grilled meats, stew, or with soft cheeses
