Grown sparingly in the southern French vineyards around Carcassone, its richness and velvet-like concentration has been intensified by the thin soils, dry climate and attention to detail by our resident ‘Guru’ winemaker, Xavier Roger. AB Alicante Bouschet (2014) Review by Adam (aka boozydude)
The cords of fine bubbles rise in undulating majesty in a pale yellow color with light green reflections. The nose combines different notes of fresh white fruit (pear, peach). In the Mouth a sharp attack offers a fleshy material with a balance on the crisp and fruity aromas that contribute to all and persist in a long, fresh, balanced finish....
Elegance and refinement for these semi-dry wines that combine the scent of citrus, slight spicy nuances and candied fruit. Delicately soft and fresh on the palate with fruity vanilla and toasted aromas, offers a final elegant and long finish.
