2000 Rivesaltes, Ambré Le Serrat VDN, Domaine Sarda-Malet

Description

The Serrat vineyard was planted with both Grenache Gris and Blanc in 1959. This is a traditional oxidative style of Rivesaltes, with old gold colouring and aromas of Oxford marmalade, cloves and dried flowers. The grapes were picked in the middle of October and allowed to macerate on their skins over-night; the warm dry weather in the late summer of 2000 is translated poetically into the glass with gentle sweetness and intimations of balneal summers. Perfect with foie gras, blue cheeses and similar healthy options.

About this WINE

Domaine Sarda-Malet

Domaine Sarda-Malet

Domaine Sarda-Malet, under the inspired guidance of Jérôme Sarda, is now one of the most respected properties in the Roussillon. Located south of Pérpignan, on the right bank of the River Têt, and with 41 hectares of vines planted on old clay limestone soils, the Domaine qualifies for both Rivesaltes and Côtes Du Roussillon appellations. Organic viticulture, allied to the influence of the cooling Mediterranean, engenders wines of freshness, precision and personality. The reds are mainly made from old-vine Carignan and Grenache Noir, younger vine Syrah and Mourvèdre, the whites from old vine Maccebeo, Grenache Blanc and Grenache Gris and slightly younger plantings of Roussanne, Marsanne, Malvoisie and Viognier. The Vins Doux Natural are, as one may expect, superb.
