Passions 2008 - Domaine de Vénus, A.O.C Côtes du Roussillon, Villages

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

I met a few members of the Domaine de Vénus’ team at a wine fair, and I was immediately charmed by their wines. This Côtes-du-Roussillon captivated me with its amazingly refined aromas of perfectly ripened fruits. The wind that blows on the vines of Saint-Paul de Fenouillet brings a nice freshness that perfectly balances the wine. 

 

Terroir

The vines of the Domaine de Vénus are planted on 40 mini plots at the foot of the Pyrenees Mountains. The grapes grow on a ground made of black schists: this kind of soil is very malleable and the roots can go really deep, ensuring that the vines will be able to get enough water all year long.

lecepage Grape variety

Carignan is a very productive grape variety. For a long time, it was used to produce cheap wines in huge quantities without caring about the quality. Fortunately, the consumers began to ask for better quality and many vines of carignan were destroyed. But the remaining vines showed that old-vine carignan grapes can be really good, so it is now used as a great addition in many blends!

lemillesime Vintage

The year 2008 was not the easiest one for Roussillon’s winemakers. The winter was really dry and did not provide the ground with the water it usually accumulates during this time of the year. Fortunately, an alternation of sun and rain during spring allowed nature to catch up, and the grapes were perfect when the time of the harvest came. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

The Domaine de Vénus is quite an uncommon domain. Indeed, it’s a family vineyard, but even though they have no blood ties, they are tied by their passion! Indeed, it is a team of 10 friends who come from different background. Physician, artist, publisher or ship captains, a lot of skills are gathered at Domaine de Vénus!
