St-Chinian "Les Terres Blanches" Borie La Vitarèle, Siant-Chinian 2017/18
Borie la Vitarèle, Saint Chinian
Jean François Izarn has been running Borie la Vitarèle bio-dynamically for a number of years. The wines are highly underrated and deserve much more recognition. Here everything is very simple and honest; Jean François and Cathy are very generous and have a great sense of hospitality. The wines are made to the same ethos; nothing to hide, just a lot of hard work in the vineyards to obtain the best quality grapes, and honest winemaking to preserve such quality, with a mix of cement tanks and use of large oak barrels.
Intense red color, the cuvée Les Terres Blanches offers power on the nose, accompanied by a beautiful minerality, finesse and delicacy in its aromas. A typically Mediterranean red, delicious and elegant, with a discreet tannic structure that provides immediate pleasure.
Grape: 80% Grenache 20% Syrah Organic
