Fosse-Sèche - Eolithe 2020 (rött/red): Natural Refinement
Eolithe is the main cuvée of Fosse-Sèche estate and a great introduction to the distinctive features of its wines: elegance and precision, minerality, peppery and tense fruity aromas. Made almost exclusively of Cabernet Franc, produced with a short maceration but a long maturation on lees, this red wine is a greqt expression of the unique terroir of Fosse Sèche. A high quality wine with a distinct and sophisticated personality, it will be a perfect match to a rack of lamb, duck breast or fried mushrooms. Best served between 12 and 14°.
This 2020 vintage is one of the best to date and brings Eolithe to new height in terms of balance and maturity. Can be drunk now as well as in the coming 20 years.
