"Bouche Bée" Côtes Catalanes Rouge - 2022

The wine showcases a deep ruby red hue, characteristic of its Mourvèdre varietal. The nose reveals a complex bouquet featuring dark fruits like blackberry and plum, intertwined with herbal nuances and a hint of spice. Subtle earthy undertones further enrich its aromatic profile. On the palate, this medium-bodied wine exhibits vibrant acidity. Dominant flavors of ripe black fruits are complemented by a touch of pepper and a slight minerality. The well-integrated tannins contribute to a smooth mouthfeel. The finish is lingering and pleasant, balancing fruit and spice, which invites another sip. At 12.5%, this wine is approachable and versatile, making it an excellent pairing for a variety of dishes. Crafted by Carolin and Nikolaus, this wine benefits from both cement and barrel aging techniques, enhancing its unique characteristics. Notably, "Bouche Bée" translates to "speechless," reflecting the delightful surprise this Mourvèdre offers, which is lighter and juicier than typical expressions of the grape, sourced from two parcels of young Mourvèdre.
