Domaine de l’Astré ‘Pelroge’ 2020


Character: Succulent Merlot/Cabernet Sauvignon blend, deep-flavoured but full of lift. Jammy black fruits, spice and herbs of the attack, moving into a minty breeze and refreshing tannic grip on the finish. Already delicious next to something smoky and meaty, but very interesting to see develop over the next few years.

Vinification: 60% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Cabernet Franc, biodynamically farmed on clay-limestone soils. Natural fermentation without additives in steel tanks, 3 week maceration with 15% whole bunches for the Merlot. Aging in tank until April the next year, bottled unfined and unfiltered with 15 mg/l of added sulphites.
