Domaine La Remejeanne Les Chèvrefeuilles Côtes du Rhône 2015
This blend comes from hillside vines with an average altitude of 250 meters, loess/limestone soil, and both south and east facing. A blend of Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Carignan, as well as some Marselan (from some old vines of a rarely seen cross between Cabernet and Grenache that Oliver likes for the acidity it brings to the blend), this is perhaps the most spicy of the Réméjeanne wines we sell. The grapes are sorted and destemmed before a long maceration of about three weeks in concrete tank. The wine then spends a year in tank prior to bottling. It's a lovely wine of great finesse with vivid, complex aromas and flavours of mulberry and raspberry spiked with musk along with hints of liquorice, violets, thyme, bay leaf and white pepper. The finish is bright, refreshing and perfumed with a flood of juicy fruit shrouded in fine powdery tannins (typical of the limestone-rich soils of Sabran). As always, this handcrafted wine is very different from your generic, mass-volume Côtes du Rhône. By the way, Chèvrefeuille [pronounced: shev-ruh-foy] is French for 'honeysuckle', the perfume of which you cannot escape during springtime in the southern Ardèche.
