- Dom d'Eole Cuvee Tradition Blanc 2014 Product #29858 (In Stock)
Organic Grapes! Provence is more famous for it's red and pink wines, but with great care and skill, it's possible to create compelling whites here, too. This comes from certified organic vines of snappy fresh Rolle (aka Vermentino in Italy) and rich, luxurious, Roussanne grown in a hidden vineyard shaped like the tongue of a dog. The sandy soils let both varietals retain their freshness while Provencal warmth, sunshine, and the blustery Mistrial wind ensure plenty of ripeness.
Aromas of crushed yellow peach, tangerine, and crushed stone lead to a creamy, but bone dry, mouthful of peach, peach skin, lime, salty stone and tangy citrus flavors. Provencal herb notes come up on the back and the stone, citrus, and mineral flavors linger on and on through the long, saline, finish. A lovely wine for salads and seafood or just to sip.
- Dom d'Eole Cuvee Tradition 2012 Product #29610 (In Stock)
Dom d'Eole is back! And, these organically farmed vines in the heart of Provence are giving their best wines ever. The delicious 2012 Tradition is equal parts cement fermented and aged Grenache and Syrah with 20% Carignan for a gutsier texture and blue-black fruit. The aromas and flavors really build with air revealing dark black fruit - plum, berries - with hints of black olive and garrigue (lavender, rosemary & thyme). On the palate, there's wonderful purity and freshness to the dark fruit, olive, and garrigue flavors with hints of Earl Gray tea, lavender, and black raspberry pumping on across the long, juicy, finish. Delicious right now with lamb or North African foods, this will develop in cellar for a lot longer than you'll wait to drink it.
