Le bonheur est dans la vigne 2011 - Domaine La Destinée, Côtes-du-Rhône

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

In French, “bonheur” means happiness, and this wine will make you feel particularly happy. Indeed, it displays an amazing balance between acidity and sweetness. The nose is deep and enchanting, and on the palate, I felt really nice aromas of cherry and cinnamon. It will pair really well with a nice brioche sausage roll. 

 

Terroir

The vines of the Domaine de La Destinée benefit from a great perk: they are planted on a mix of clay and limestone. What does it mean? It means that the ground accumulates a lot of water and is therefore able to water the vines constantly. This specificity gives a lot of freshness to the vines, which is significant in such a sunny area!

lecepage Grape variety

Very common in the Rhône Valley, grenache is mainly known for giving mature red berries aromas that blend amazingly well with the spicy flavours of syrah. This wine is also a chance to taste a little bit of carignan, a grape variety which is quite uncommon in the Rhône Valley and that gives to the wine this great silky texture!

lemillesime Vintage

2011 was a disturbing year for the winemakers. At the beginning of spring, everyone was expecting an early harvest. But the sun, that shined a lot during spring, became rarer during summer. Therefore, the grapes needed more time to fully ripen. The consequence was that the harvest eventually took place mid-September, as usual! 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

Sandrine and Pierre are passionate winemakers who have a specific interest in the history of winemaking. That’s why they gathered many ancient tools related to viticulture and winemaking and created a small museum with these historical pieces.
