A great option from Burgundy with an Irish touch
Harvested from the acclaimed "Le Jarrons" organic vineyard, this wine exhibits complexity and elegance with an impressive spectrum of evolving flavors and delightful textures. A lengthy aging process in 3rd use barrels, along with an extended elevage and slow fermentation, have contributed to this wine's remarkable balance. As is typical for Róisín's carefully crafted wines, this vintage was made in miniscule quantity, with only enough to fill a single barrel.
- Limited production
- Carefully crafted by an Irish winemaker
- Complex and elegant
Food Pairing: This wine's impeccable acidity softens the flavors of spicy and salty dishes and fatty foods, making it an ideal accompaniment. It pairs especially well with meat, fried foods, chitterling sausages, seafood, and goat's milk cheeses.
Cellaring: Enjoy now and over the next three to five years.
STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
Róisín's vineyards largely practice organic farming, including with this wine, and the vinification is minimalist, allowing the land and variety to express themselves.
Regular forays to the area and ongoing connections with the growers ensure complete oversight of the procedure, resulting in such remarkable quality. The growers' response is unsurprisingly enthusiastic, the utmost honor that could be earned.
Róisín is a multifaceted figure, serving as a winemaker, micro-negotiant, pharmacist in Ballyhaunis, County Mayo, and ultimately a Master of Wine.
