Domaine de l Espigouette Cotes du Rhone 2012
- Out of stock
Bernard Latour is a rising star of the Southern Rhone, with impecable vineyards of around 32 hectares. The Domaine is in organic conversion but Bernard says little has changed in practice for generations. He has been joined by his son Julien following a "stage" in Australia and his younger son Emilien has also just joined them. The 32 hectares are spread between Gigondas, Vacqueyras, Plan de Dieu and some 15ha producing his super Cotes du Rhône. The average age of his vines is not less than 40 years old. These are delicious, full-flavoured, old fashioned, rich, spicy wines. Bernard's Cotes du Rhone is predominantly Grenache with a littleSyrah, Mouvedre, Carignan and Cinsault blended in for good measure.
