Terre de Bussière, Principauté d’Orange IGP 2020, Domaine de la Janasse


SKU: 37209470770 Categories: ,

With inviting aromas of blackberries, peppery rasperries and cherry jam, this wine smells very like Côtes du Rhône, and yet its flavours and structure are suggestive of Bordeaux, with hints of pencil shavings and green pepper. This makes sense when you know that it is made from a combination of the Rhône’s Syrah and Grenache, together with the Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon more typical of Bordeaux. The Cabernet in particular contributes structure to the wine, which shows some earthy tannins, although these become more integrated after decanting. The Bussière vineyard has gravelly soil, like much of Bordeaux, which influenced the choice of vine varieties planted. It is located next to the Ouvèze river, in Courthézon, the commune adjacent to Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
