Domaine de la Touraize - 2016 AOC Arbois 'La Cabane' MAGNUM
Light and iridescent Ploussard, with complexity beyond its years. A vivacious rouge that greets you with a very wearable perfume of rose, crushed strawberry and spice. The palate is a long, captivating performance played by blood orange, red fruits and subtle baking fresh. Impossibly delicate and elegant. Touraize recommends this wine as a companion "for any fun, relaxing moments." You know what to do.
Dating back to 1704 (!!), Domaine de la Touraize is family owned and has been passed down through eight generations. The family believe winemaking begins in the vineyard – 'winegrowing' – and as such their land practices are biodynamic. This Ploussard was handpicked, carefully hand de-stemmed and carbonically macerated in tank. Aged in tank for 3 months, and then matured in old demi-muids for the final 3 months. Bottled by gravity.
