Quinta dos Murças, Minas 2017

Price
€16,50

Lively Portuguese red with an intense dark color and a purple glow. On the nose, the ripe red fruit and voluptuous flowers stand out. In addition, it is also reminiscent of balsamic. The wine has ripe tannins and pleasant acidity. A good balance between ripeness and freshness, also in the aftertaste.

In the south-west of Savoie lies the village of Jongieux, where Antoine and his parents make congenial, unaffected wines from local grape varieties. For whites these are jacquère and roussette and for reds gamay and mondeuse. The vineyards are situated on poor limestone slopes at about 400 meters altitude. The area has even recently been classified as a national heritage site because of its beauty. And for 7th generation Antoine, preserving this landscape is one of the most important aspects and therefore the domaine is certified 'Haute Valeur Environnementale', which means they are super sustainable.
