2018 Émelie Hurtubise & Raphaël Beysang Paltieres 1L


Out of stock

This is from the darker, more structured 2018 vintage and this cuvee had a year in foudre before bottling. The whole bunch fermentation allows this wine to simply shrug off the compact tannins of the vintage and today it’s energetic, fresh and very delicious. There’s a shade of blue in the fruit and while this also serves very well as an aperitif I’d urge you to also enjoy a second bottle with a meal. Paltieres is a single site with mixed vine age – part of parcel is around 30 years old and the other section a much older 80-ish years. This site is based on almost pure limestone. 
This cuvee is bottled under cork in recycled bottles. Emelie and Raph found a facility where used bottles could be sterilised so as to be used again and for this cuvee they sourced enough of the old traditional 1L bottles from the region with the star on the shoulder. 
Serve this cuvee at about 15C.
