2018 Vignes des Deux Soleils Les Romains Rouge Magnum
This ruby red wine has the allure of a good Pomerol. Overwhelming scent of full and creamy fruit. The taste is compact, velvety and gives a rich impression of optimally healthy grapes. Ripe juice with the finesse and refinement of a hint of oak. This majestic wine is pampered on the best quality French oak barriques and is made from the classic Bordeaux grape varieties merlot and cabernet sauvignon. The taste is richly concentrated with juicy fruit, friendly fresh acidity and distinguished, velvety tannins and a rich and unctuous complexity with an unprecedented long aftertaste. Ready to drink now and will develop further in the coming years.
The year 2017 in France was an excellent and warm year for the Bordeaux, Rhône and Languedoc. The wines are very mature, well structured and have aging potential. The man behind the wines of Les Romains is Nicolas Ramond. This talented and passionate wine master meticulously maintains the vineyards and thus knows how to achieve optimal health of the vines. Drink this wine with roasted meat, game dishes or aged cheeses.
The wine was also assessed by the Perwsijn tasting panel in May 2017: "...the wine does not deny its warm southern terroir. You smell the south and the sea, with herbs, thyme, garrigue, plums; in the mouth it is firm and juicy, intense, with good acidity and tannins."
