La Selve – Beaulieu 2019 – Areche France
50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Grenache, 25% Cinsault
The Ardeche is a lesser-known winemaking region on the fringes of the much more famous Cotes-du-Rhone, this wine is fermented naturally using indigenous yeast and then aged for 12 months, half in old oak barrels and half in clay amphora.
Blackcurrant, baking spices, dried herbs. Full-bodied with slightly grippy tannins and luscious texture.
