Domaine d'Ouréa Vacqueyras 2018
|REGION||Rhone Valley, France|
The Ourea estate is a young estate located on Vacqueras in the Southern Rhone region of France and led by the young and talented Adrien Roustan. The field of Ourea produces Vacqueras red and white on 9 hectares, as well as gigondas on 4.5 hectares. The Ourea area has a magnificent terroir in altitude, between 400 and 550m, which allows the wines to keep more freshness than the majority of the wines of the same appellations. Moreover, Andrien tries to harvest ripe but not too much, to benefit from a maximum of fruit in bottle while keeping digestible wines. A Burgundy approach in the Rhone Valley.
Dark ruby colour, intense and tasty nose of red fruit notes. Gently sweet on the palate, with firm tannins on notes of blackberry, blackcurrant, liquorice, herbes de Provence, a fragrant and complex style. A fine and elegant Vacqueyras that reflects the harmony and wisdom of old Grenache, in a straight and pure register.
