LA CROIX GRATIOT LES ZAZOUS ROUGE
Owned by brothers Yves and Hugues Ricome for over 30 years, Domaine La Croix Gratiot covers 27 hectares in Montagnac in the Coteaux du Languedoc. After years of selling to the local co-operative, Yves started bottling his own wine in 2005. His daughter Anaïs has now taken charge, after working for some time in New Zealand with Matt Thomson, and makes wonderfully pure wines that reflect the potential of the local varieties with which she works. The Domaine has been practising biodynamic since 2016 and is currently in conversion. The first certified vintage will be in 2021.
Harvest and manual sorting, natural fermentation in palox, 2 daily pigeages with the feet at the height of the fermentation, then one to finish the vatting of about 3 weeks, pressing and aging in barrels for one year.
Complex with hints of cherry with alcohol, prunes, then spicy notes of pepper and cinnamon. Serve at 15 ° C, rabbit tian with potatoes and tapenade, veal chop grilled over a wood fire.
