After 10 years of tests, this full bodied red wine comes to light with its magnificent maturation. A wonderful synthesis mastered brilliantly for this limited release, with an intense nose of black fruits, followed by black cherries.
TASTING: Gently fragrant on the nose, this full bodied red wine shows more expression on the palate where the flavours of blackberry and black plum are underpinned by attractive tobacco notes. As the wine breathes, it reveals great fruit intensity and the aromas of maquis that are so distinctive to the Léoube vineyard. Structured and classically proportioned, this is a “vin de garde” that could easily develop for a further 5 to 15 years.
SERVING TEMPERATURE : 18°C
WINE PAIRING: perfect for your shooting lodge, match with traditional English stews and any variety of game.
Léoube’s vineyard story begins in Provence, home to the oldest vineyards in France retaining the secrets of life, perfumes and sunny foods deep in its heart. Léoube estate is rooted between the sea and the hills, offering a unique terroir: 68 hectares of vines and 23 hectares of olive groves, all devoted to growing the grapes and olives that make their organic wines and olive oils. For more than 20 years Léoube hs been cultivating and working the soils in line with their principles of organic farming. In 1998, Léoube started the long process of converting the vineyard and olive grove; restoring the crops, redeveloping the plots, working the soil with the greatest care and planting vines according to the flow of water to avoid erosion. Banning the use of any pesticides and chemicals, to produce only what the land can offer. As the founders of Daylesford Organic – one of the UK’s most sustainable farms – the Bamford family are passionate about environmentally friendly farming and wished to bring this natural approach to Léoube. Farming in harmony with nature. It is not constrained, but supported, considering the natural cycle of the seasons and respecting the balance of each plant in its environment. Léoube truly embodies their philosophy; to make the world of today and tomorrow more sustainable in order to leave a better planet for future generations.
