Léa - 2008, Domaine d'Eole, Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

I am pleased to present this month a wine that is both delicious and well-structured! With an alcohol content of 14.5°, one can definitely say that this wine is bodied. The risk with this type of rich wines is that sometimes alcohol takes over. But this is not at all the case with Léa since the winemaker has striked a magnificent balance between alcohol, acidity, tannins and the aromatic bouquet of this vintage. 

 

Terroir

The soil is sand and limestone. The consequence is that it does not hold water, so more water arrives very often with new nutriments for the vines. It also means that the vines has to grow very deep roots, which explains why the wine is so concentrated and with so much alcohol. It is one of the most sunny region in France, and you taste the sun while drinking it!

lecepage Grape variety

This wine is a blend of two varieties: it’s half Grenache and half Syrah. These are the two typical varieties of southern France. Syrah likes well-drained areas, but fears drought, it brings much of the tannins and aromas of pepper or violet. Grenache meanwhile, is a vigorous variety with an amazing aromatic intensity with aromas of black berries.

lemillesime Vintage

Summers are hot and dry in this region of Provence, next to the Mediterranean in the south of France. Although renowned difficult, the 2008 vintage is characterized by heterogeneity from one estate to another. Some winemakers did way better than others thanks to their technical skills, including Domaine d’Eole who provided us with a very fine vintage. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

The Domaine d’Eole is a rising star. I would not hesitate to predict that their future will be bright thanks to the two men who are dedicating their time to this wonderful terroir: Matthias Wimmer, passionate oenologist, and Christian Raimont, owner of the estatesince 1996.
