Les Plots 2016 Minervois red
Bottle price : 9,50 euros
Gloomy but brilliant vermilion, under its fleshy shell, Le Plôt is rooted in its terroir. This telluric wine is stained of spicies, fugitive red fruit touches, violette flowers, blackcurrant aroma colours, and steals to other places the totemic green pepper aroma. Well filled of delicious tenderness, the architecture is dressed with pageantry which never let the strength be too powerfull, nor going out of the aestethics paths.
Its a demigod from the wine Pantheon, keeper of the work memory, it reveals the mystery of roots alchimy that humanizes our terroir minerality.
