TN: 2018 Domaine de L'Astré Périgord Esper

  • 2018 Domaine de L’Astré Périgord Esper - France, Southwest France, Dordogne, Périgord (15/06/2021)
    Interested to try this, all the cool kids in town seem to like this producer who is new to me. This was listed as a rose, but was only just slightly pink, a blend of 50% Cabernet and 50% Semillon co-fermented, aged in 400l barrels. Quite round and supple fruited, slightly curious but enjoyable, had some heft but a nice mix of citrus and light berry notes, a little hazy for the last glasses, quite ‘vivant’ and interesting.
