un jus rustique, hautement complexe, épicé et porté par le fruit. La bouche est souple. C'est facile à boire, trop facile... Mais on n'est pas sur un vin de soif, Racines offre complexité et caractère. On le boit vite car on est sur une gourmandise...
Claude Courtois & Fils
Highly complex, rustic, spicy and fruit driven. The palate is supple. It’s easy to drink, too easy… But this is no simple ‘vin de soif’thirst-quencher, Racines boasts complexity and character. We drink it fast, but only because it’s such an indulgence…
A complex bouquet, with notes of candied fruits. A rich palate, mineral and saline. A rare and fiendishly good wine, concocted by the sorcerer Claude Courtois and his son Etienne, who has officially taken over the reigns for this cuvée.
An extremely aromatic, exotic nose, with notes of flowers and citrus. The palate, bristling with tension, is unctuous and seductive. Rounded structure, a saline finish, and lovely bitter notes make for a well-balanced ensemble.
Less driven by its minerality compared to the Quartz cuvée, Plume d'Ange is redolent of citrus and flowers... The palate is dense, surprising, with notes of citrus and pear. The finish is long and saline. A rich, intense juice indeed.
A fruity nose of cherries, plums and spice. A palate with tension and minerality, in other words, pure Courtois! Lovely balance, resembles great Pinot Noir... Splendid stuff, and luckily for us, the starlings didn’t eat the whole harvest this year!
