Domaine Plageoles Terroirists Orange - Grain & Vine | Natural Wines, Rare Bourbon and Tequila Collection

Domaine Plageoles Terroirists Orange

$ 30

The Terroirists wines come from the Plageoles family’s own impressive bush vines; unlike their other wines that are single-varietal, this range is based on blends (or field-blends) of multiple indigenous varieties.


Grapes: Muscadelle (80%); Mauzac, Ondenc, Verdanel, Loin de L’œil & Sauvignon (20%)


Vineyard: bush vines on clay-limestone. Estate-owned, certified organic, farmed by the Plageoles family themselves.


Making of: the grapes are hand-harvested. The Muscadelle is whole-bunch macerated for 11 days, pressed and then aged in demi-muids for 9 months, the remaining varieties are direct-pressed and aged in tanks. Both spontaneous and ML fermentation happen spontaneously. The two parts are blended at the end of elevage. Bottled unfined, unfiltered, with a tiny bit of sulfur (20ppm total).


Personality: charming orange with notes of dried fruit, candied orange peel and exotic spice like curry or turmeric – super cool food-pairing material! Our fave combo is with some not-too-strong cheeses, Indian / Moroccan cuisine or poultry, but don’t hesitate to have fun finding your own matches. Or to drink it on its own .)
