Château d’Or et de Gueules ‘Trassegum’ Red

£15.00 £12.50

Previous vintges recommended by Jancis Robinson: “Brilliant fruit, fine tannins…..serious build and potential.”

Selected from the best parts of the vineyard, this is a blend of Syrah, Carignan and Mourverdre. Each varietal is kept apart and aged in 500 litre oak barrels for 12 months. Only then do they decide upon the final blend. Once made, the finished wine is aged for yet another 12 months in those same barrels before bottling. Only 10% of the barrels are new wood, so there’s no “in your face ” oakiness here!
Diane only releases this wine if she feels it is up to her highest standards of quality. So, no 2002 vintage ‘ it was all sold off in bulk to the ‘négociants’. The 2003 vintage was a cracker. No 2004 vintage either; that, too, was not good enough, the 2005, 2007 and 2009s brilliant…as was the 2011.
And then along came the equally scrumptious 2103, now the fab 2015. What more can I say? Drink now to 2026 (really!)
