Thierry Navarre Vin d'Oeillade 2020
REGION: Languedoc, France
GRAPE: Cinsault , Oeillades
Fresh - Sharp - Strawberries
A pale cherry-red in colour. On the nose, scents of strawberries and pomegranate. Light and refreshing on the palate with further summer fruit berry flavours. The finish is crisp with lip-smacking acidity. Serve slightly chilled.
Thierry is the third generation of his family to work their vineyards, his passions are for the vineyard, for nature, for cultivating plants, especially the vines, for making wine and sharing it with friends around good tables and conviviality.
This is a small organic estate of a dozen hectares in the beautiful countryside of the high Languedoc to the north of Beziers growing grape varieties typical of the Saint-Chinian area.
Once destemmed, the grapes are fermented and rested in cement.
Try this with Morbier, a classic alpine french cheese.
