Chateau Haut Musiel – Lirac 2009
This promising fomain wzas founded in 2002 by Jean-Pierre and Marie-Caroline Vanderpol, rum producers in Martinique who purchased their 17 hectacres of vines ideally situated in the triangle in the heart of the Rhone between Avignon, Nîmes and Uzès. The estate is now run by the couple’s daughter, Marie Popelin and her husband Jean Marie, and produces red and white wines with an emphasis on fruit and finesse over power.
A deep ruby colour with aromas of red fruits, black fruits, scrubland, and spices. As they age, they develop aromas of leather, liquorice, truffles, and cocoa.
