Made from a blend with 3 grapes (Shiraz
and Cabernet Sauvignon
), Villa Baulieu
2011 is mainly sourced from white chalky marl soils and from a few spots of basalt soil. Aged in french barrels for 10 to 12 months, Villa Baulieu
team looks for harmony, finesse and elegance. This Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence
is fine with complex aromas of mocha, liquorice and very refreshing mint liqueur dominate, underlined by hints of peony and liquorice sweets, followed by perfumes of black berries and white fleshed fruit. On the palate this red wine from Provence
is fresh, dynamic, with a rich structure of tight, refined tannins. Perfectly integrated use of oak !
