Domaine de l’Astré ‘Flamenc’ 2019


Character: A rosé, but not quite. Salmon-hued and suffused with subtle red fruit and orange-peel aromas, sure, but also loads of yeasty funk, a touch of cream and the honeyed baked apple note of Semillon. Thick but piercing juice, exciting stuff!

Vinification: Biodynamically farmed Semillon (50%), Cabernet Franc (30%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (20%) grapes on clay-limestone soils. Direct-press of whole bunches, natural fermentation and aging in old oak barrels, bottled unfined and unfiltered with minimal added sulphites.
