Château La Coste Les Pentes Douces 2021

Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence, Provence, Sud de France, FranceThis organic / biodynamic blend of Vermentino and Sauvignon blanc comes from d'Aix's limestone slopes. After a ferment in stainless and barrel, this continued to mature in barrel on lees for 6 months, with bâtonnage, prior to bottling. The creaminess from the barrel and lees work are easily met by the limestone laced fruit on the streamlined, lightly creamy palate. Wild lemon, tight melon, verbena, white peach blossom is licked with anise, and amply laced with salinity. Impressive and unexpected.Tasted: 03 March 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
