Sentiers de Bagatelle Donnadieu 2013
Donnadieu is a little hamlet north of Saint Chinian. Its soil of schists gives very poor terroir, silver or blue colour sometimes ochred. This soil is laminated and silky stone. The land turns blood red in the sunset.
This wine from schist is delicate. The nose is explosive and yet what a freshness! Peony, raspberry, prune, cherry, liquorice, black pepper, eucalyptus. After this aromatic bouquet, the mouth is soothing, tender, slightly grainy, lively even joyfull. Each new sip makes you discover something unexpected. A northern accent in a Mediterranean wine, in a way.
