ATYPIQUE 2018 IGP Pays d'Oc
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer DOMAINE DE LA CENDRILLON
Assessed from a bottle purchased at the LCBO. Here is a distinctive new organic red - a blend of 40% Marselan, 30% Merlot and 30 % Mourvèdre with no oak as it that was all aged in concrete vats for 12 months. It has a very deep intense purple colour with a spicy, complex, youthful, ripe, dark plum-cherry-cassis nose with some faintly herbal, earthy-mushroom notes. Dry, medium bodied, still somewhat grippy, rather intense, slightly peppery, ripe, plum-cassis flavours with a lingering, fairly tangy, earthy, soy-tinged finish. Has 14.5% alcohol and a g/L residual sugar with lot number L24081GPA18202 on the lower part of the glass bottle. Recommended at the price, perhaps with robust beef stew. NEW in Vintages. CSPC 18151

TASTING NOTE: Organically grown and matured 12 months in concrete, this atypical (in the best way) wine is a blend of 30% Merlot, 30% Mourvèdre and 40% Marselan - the latter being a cross between Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache. Expect plush texture and an interplay of red and dark fruit and pour with beef-and-eggplant stew.
