Tasting of the cuvee Équinoxe 2009 from Domaine de l’Arjolle

23 August 2013, by Sebastian Nickel

A white wine with a warm, golden color. An expressive nose with smells of quince, white blossoms and spices. But its real flavours seem to explode on the palate: Apple, backed pears, pleasant smells of fresh barrique, a hint of smoke… Full-bodied and fresh, it has a creamy texture that makes me think of a fluffy vanilla and cinnamon sabayone.

This wine whets your appetite, asking for good food! But it also invites to far niente, lingering in an arm chair, sipping on a glass of wine, wasting time.
So tonight I’ll have to improvise, with some middle-aged goat cheese from the Cevennen, flavourful olive oil from Spain and fresh sesame bread. With the full glass in my right hand, the bread, cheese and olive oil in my left, I jump into the arm chair and wait for the night to come. Tasty waste of time…
