A good glass of... Touriga Nacional 2013 from France !

19 December 2014, by Sebastian Nickel

Only just poured, and already he gets cocky on the glasses edge. It seduces with a lush perfume, as impressive as its dark colour: blackberries and raspberries, some smoke and bay leaves, roasted hazelnuts and cinnamon ...

Touriga Nacional Pierre Cros

I’m really impressed by the character of this Portuguese grape variety that has taken root in the rocky soil of the Minervois. Fresh on the palate, with just as much flavour as odour and a hint of mint that makes the whole thing a little weightless… Its generous and creamy with very long aftertaste. I also find the scent trail of raspberry leaves, sweet and tart at the same time (in my youth I fermented raspberry leaves to make tea from it).

You won’t drink this wine without paying attention. Just sit down and forget about time…
