Domaine Du Météore Les Leonides 2008

  • The wines are typically medium weight and fresh. Fragrant herbs and lavender. Blackberries, blackcurrents, spices, earthy and fine minerals. Balanced, fresh acidity and gentle, grippy tannins.

The 19ha of vines are planted on slate schist covered slopes surrounded by the fragrance of thyme and earthy scrub. The estate is named Météore, after the meteorite that crashed into the land during pre-historic times, leaving a vast crater which is now planted with vines
