Vagamonde ‘19, La Cave des Nomades, France
Well hello, beautiful: A true terroir driven wine with gorgeously rounded tannins, given her youth. With only 1.7k bottles made she’s a soft, deep, warm, round & expressive train you want a ticket to ride. Showing a fresh, savoury minerality with wild nuances of scrub flowers, spice, roots & red fruit she’s the deepest red from the Nomades ’19 portfolio. With all the varietals harvested from a single plot, the Merlot is macerated in whole bunches for 14 days while the other 2 are destemmed before maceration for 14 days. Each variétal is vinified separately in both inox (stainless steel) and barrels, before blending at bottling. There is a distinct freshness that tempers the deep fruit & she’s wonderfully linear with a persistent finish. A traditional style kissed by winemaker Ze’s magic touch, she’s an absolute dreamboat.
Varietals : 40% Grenache Noir, 40% Merlot, 20% Mourvèdre
