TUESDAY NIGHT FLIGHT - US DEBUT FOR the beautiful natural wines from DOMAINE DE LA SARBECHE and MONTS ET MERVEILLES! Join us @racines_ny to discover, for the first time in the US, the beautiful natural wines from Domaine de la Sarbeche iand Monts et Merveilles!
While traveling with David Lillie last winter, we were fortunate to taste with the young Cyril Milochevitch of Domaine de la Sarbèche. We tasted his 2017 Vin de Pays Syrah, from vines in Saint-Peray, the 2016 Saint-Peray from the lieu-dit "Fauterie" and the 2016 Saint-Joseph from "Les Rivoires" in Tournon, an excellent parcel which also contributes to the Pierre Gonon Saint-Joseph. While all three wines showed very well, we were particularly impressed with the 2016 Saint-Joseph, vinified with zero additives, which was dense, deep and well structured - a natural wine from great terroir that should show beautifully after five to ten years of cellaring. Cyril's first vintage was 2014 from two hectares of organic vines in Saint-Peray, adding the small parcels of Syrah in Saint Peray and Saint Joseph in 2015, which are now in conversion to organic farming.
MONTS ET MERVEILLES
Laure Boussu and Julien Audard created the domaine in 2012 with 4 hectares of vines mostly on schist and limestone in the Montagnes Noires and a small parcel on the limestone “causse” a bit to the north. The farming here has been organic and biodynamic from the start, without using copper and vinification is with zero or minimal SO2 added. To protect the life of the soil, the vineyards are plowed as little as possible.
