Domaine Aubai Mema - La Douzième
ORGANIC / VEGAN/ MULTI MEDAL WINNER (INCLUDING SOME PRETTY BIG ONES)
Côte Rotie style Northern Rhone clone of 95% Syrah and 5% Viognier, ,all hand-picked, destemmed and vinified together in temperature-controlled stainless with natural yeasts only. The wine is then matured in French oak barrels for 9 months to give a carefully created a balance between the extraction of fruit and tannins, and La Douzième can age 10-15 years but immediately has a generous and subtle mouthfeel.
Gilbert & Gaillard Wine Guide: "Deep, young colour. Refined nose driven by plum, cherry and peach with a spicy touch of garrigue. Chewy, powerful palate with aromatic depth placing rich, suave Mediterranean flavours to the fore."
Jancis Robinson 'Sweet Syrah and very winning. Not industrial edge. Really attractive balance – sweetness and freshness with some real integrity in the middle. Lots of grunt. Good stuff! Great balance and naturalness. Fine, scented. Undertow of richness but beautiful balance. Good value' 17/20.
