La Chapelle de Saint Dominique 2014 (Red)
There's this legendary terroir in the South of France called Aniane, a commune in the Hérault department in the Occitanie region where the Occitan language and its various dialects used to be spoken hundreds of years ago. There, the soil is miocene terrain with limestone and sandstone gravel that is 10 metres deep, allowing exceptional filtration.
The Domaine de Saint Dominique estate which produces the La Chapelle series was specifically chosen for its isolation, lying opposite the Larzac plateau, surrounded by garrigue and forests allowing for wine grapes to grow with depth and finesse. Traditional grape varieties (Merlot, Vieux Carignan, Syrah, Mourvedre) are then planted side by side with more unexpected varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon to make very fine vintages that can reach a very high degree of phenolic ripeness. The cooler climate means there is always an underlying freshness and perfume to its produce.
After aging for 12 months in oak, on the nose La Chapelle de Saint Dominique 2014 has a pronounced intensity, with aromas of red cherries, plum, blackberries, vanilla, cloves and in the mouth some chocolate and toffee. Similar wines usually cost up to 30% more. There's only one thing to say to that:
In your case:
One (1) Bottle of La Chappelle de Saint Dominique 2014
You might want to consider the "Here Comes the Sun" series which we very much recommend as one of the best value cases we have and gives you the combined goodness of blends and single varietals. We've tried every one, loved every one.
