Producer: Domaine les Aurelles
A blend of 85% Mourvèdre and 15% Grenache, this is a powerful wine with generous black fruits, elements of dark spices such as clove, and mineral qualities remiscent of graphite. More intensity and depth than the ‘Solen’ cuvée, and therefore will easily drink until 2022. Domaine les Aurelles makes wines that are not to be missed. As neighbours and friends of renowned Languedoc domaines such as Grange des Pères and Domaine de Trevallon, they follow the same rigorous care of their vineyards and low-intervention practices in the winery, yielding wines of great power but great elegance as well.
Food pairing: Roasted pork tenderloin with fennel and garlic
