2016 VDF ‘Anatheme rouge’


2016 VDF ‘Anatheme rouge’


Until the 1980s, Aramon was 50% of Languedoc vineyards, now only 0.3%. Grapes that are suited to the heat of the Languedoc, ripening with lower alcohol and higher acid than you would expect. Pale in colour, bright in fruit with a deceptively strong tannic structure
