Here too, as in the aroma, the dark fruit of blackcurrants, blackberries and blueberries shows with a sweet core, but still seems cool and fresh. The walnut remains part of the potpourri even with air and warmth, plus notes of hanging meat, undergrowth, sloes and a bit of farming and cattle breeding - which, however, is by no means disturbing, but integrated and also only very gently perceptible.

Wine information

This is one of the two Syrahs of Marlène Soria, one of the "best, craziest, most irrepressible winemakers of the whole Languedoc", as it says in the Vinum is called. It is certainly true that it takes a good deal of strength of character to age one's wines for more than ten years in large wood and in cement tanks before bottling them. But what comes out of it proves her right. The Clos de Cistes is a Syrah fermented with a small amount of Grenache. Both grape varieties stand in the same vineyard on hard rock.

Color

dark brick red with brownish reflections

Nose

Ripe walnuts, a hint of cloves and a little nutmeg are the initial aromas of this wine from Marlène Soria, which has been aged for over ten years and was caraffed immediately after opening. This wine is crying out for a lot of air and then reveals more and more of its dense and complex aromas. The walnut remains part of the potpourri even with air and warmth, in addition there are notes of hanging meat, undergrowth, sloes and a little bit of agriculture and cattle breeding - which, however, does not disturb at all, but is integrated and also only very gently perceptible. With warmth the dark, almost black fruit also becomes more and more concise. It brings a sweet, ripe core and a wonderfully juicy wild berry perfume.

Palate

Although the color of the Clos de Cistes The wine is youthfully unbound and full of energy on the palate. The wine has a lot of power as well as pressure and also delivers a distinctive but ripe tannin. Here, as on the nose, the dark fruit of blackcurrants, blackberries and blueberries shows through with a sweet core, but still comes across as cool and fresh. Of course, the acidity also contributes, giving this fleshy and also herb-scented wine the backbone it needs. This is very cohesive, complex and inviting. Despite the ten years of cellar maturity, the wine is still at the beginning of its development.
