Type: Red Wine
Grape: Côt (Malbec)
Julien Pineau is in Touraine, where he started with his own vines in 2015, after training with Lise and Bertrand Jousset in nearby Montlouis, and Laurent Saillard. Julien's vines are ploughed by horse and are farmed organically/biodynamically. The Côt for this wine comes from 120 year-old vines which yield very little fruit, but extraordinary concentration.
Bright blackberry and red currant aromas, with cocoa, violet, roast meat, earth and spice. Dense black fruits on the palate are lifted by bright acidity. The finish is lovely with blackberry and red currant fruits framed in vivid mineral flavors, complex and long. No added sulfur.
