Racines du Ciel is a young wine that requires some time and patience. Fermented by indigenous yeast in 100% concrete vats. On the nose, discrete aromas of tomato leaves, red pepper, red currant, licorice, wet rock and fresh basil gives you an idea of the directional and linear approach of this wine, also displaying a low alcohol level for a Franc at 11.5%. The palate follows the same direction, being less on texture and more on precision, acidity and intensity. A flavour sequence of red currant, raspberry and red pepper opens up the experience before an interesting mid-palate of blueberry, potpourri, leather and dark cocoa follow suite before delivering an earthy, grippy and crunchy finish. Lay this wine down for a couple of years - I’m sure you’ll be rewarded. (CWC,28 /08/23). 837 cases made.Food
