Domaine du Météore Van Gogh Avenue of Poplars in Autumn Rouge
Grapes: Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre
Domaine du Météore is a unique Faugères estate located atop a 200 metre wide crater that was created when a meteorite crashed into the area 10,000 years ago. The low-yielding vines grow in rocky schist soils that force the roots to delve deep in search of nutrients and imbue the wines with pronounced minerality. Winemaking is low intervention with the domaine certified organic and working towards biodynamic certification.
The Van Gogh Rouge is a special cuvée made in collaboration with the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, representing the link between nature and art, the South of France and Vincent himself. With a label featuring Van Gogh's Avenue of Poplars in Autumn, the rouge is a deep and spicy blend of Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre with an aromatic nose combining ripe blackcurrant with a balsamic freshness and the wild mint, fennel and lavender of the garrigue.
