Belle Leone 2011 - Domaine Peyre Rose - Vin de France
This great Languedoc wine has a salty, marine minerality, which is accompanied by a basket of sweet fruit, saddle leather and assorted meat. Fragrant and complex on the aromatic level, it is full-bodied, voluptuous and rich, as well as very concentrated. Long finish.
Why a change of name and appellation?
The famous winemaker, Marlène Soria, has decided to remove the name "Côteaux du Languedoc" for several reasons. From now on, the wine is under the appellation "Vin de France". This is mainly due to the freer legislation from the vineyard to the winery. This is why the names of the cuvées have also changed: the winemaker has actually changed their name, "Le Clos des Cistes" becomes "Les Cistes". The "Syrah Léone" vat becomes "Belle Léone".
What does this change?
Don't worry! The quality of these great wines is still there. They still have their superb spicy, powerful and long-lasting character. Concerning the "Belle Léone" cuvée: the Syrah can be completed with a little Grenache and Mourvèdre. The wine is aged for no less than 10 years, 3/4 in vats and 1/4 in casks, including a substantial maturing period in the bottle before release.
