Domaine La Milliere Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red 'La Bessade' 2012 (Vinous: 92) (RP:93)

FRR00579

一瓶真正有表現力、細緻、優雅的單一葡萄紅酒,葡萄品種和風土的和諧典範。

酒莊於Châteauneuf-du-Pape的唯一單一葡萄特釀。La Bessade”的起源是酒莊家族歷史的中心,酒名來自Michel童年居住的家 “La Bessade”。Michel的祖父和父親對這塊土地特別喜愛,早已將它與其他葡萄樹分隔開,把Grenache Noir葡萄樹種植在這塊金黃色的沙土上。Michel為尋回他的家族傳統和童年回憶,於2012年釀造了這瓶Châteauneuf-du-Pape Rouge “La Bessade”特釀。

A truly expressive, refined, elegant and thoroughbred wine. The Quintessence of harmony between grape variety and terroir.

The only single plot cuvée from their Châteauneuf-du-Pape terroir, the origins of “La Bessade” are at the heart of the estate family history. The name comes from Michel’s childhood home called “La Bessade”. Its Grenache Noir vines, anchored in blond sand soil, were always dear to Michel’s grandfather and father and they already vinified this plot of vines apart from the rest. Coming back to this family tradition and in homage to the land of his childhood, Michel created his Cuvée Châteauneuf-du-Pape Rouge “La Bessade” in 2012.

Appellation:
AOC Chateauneuf du Pape, southern Rhone

Country of Origin:
France

Terroir :
Sand located in the area of Cabrières, on the place called “La Bessade”, at the north of Châteauneuf-du-Pape Appellation Controlee.

Vinification :
Exclusively hand-picked, hand-selected and de-stemmed grapes. 25 to 30 days of fermentation. Aged in vats, and then in the French oak demi-muids (hogshead barrels around double the standard size) from April for 15 months. Bottled after 2 or 3 years.

Grape Variety :
100% Grenache Noir

Age of Vine:
100 years old vineyard

The Vintage :
With its historically low yield, 2012 is a vintage with balance at its heart. Fruity, round, creamy, deep and dense, wines born in 2012 are seductive and powerful. A great cellaring vintage.

Tasting Notes :

Lovely intense shiny deep crimson robe, with small stone fruit (plum, wild cherry) aromas, and notes of fresh liquorice and undergrowth. Great amplitude for this powerful, elegant, racy and fresh palate; lovely structure with really fine and silky tannins. A lovely long-lasting finish with liquorice and sweet spice notes.

Josh Raynolds:

Brilliant ruby. Deeply pitched dark berry and cherry aromas show good clarity and pick up a peppery element with air. Fleshy and broad on the palate, offering gently sweet blackberry and cherry compote flavors and a subtle touch of gaminess. In a supple, seamless, highly approachable style, finishing with outstanding thrust and smooth tannins that sneak up slowly. Vinous: 92 (Drink: 2017 - 2024)

Winemaker’s Advice :

With this wine’s excellent cellaring potential (15 to 20 years), the gourmet should wait 5 years before this wine starts to show off its great complexity. Decant an hour before serving. Ideal serving temperature: 16°C.
