Domaine Leon Boesch Les Pierres Rouges
Matthieu and Marie Boesch are the 11th generation to take charge of this domaine, which has been in the hands of the family since 1640. Under their guidance the vineyards have since become a haven for the local wildlife, from birds nesting to bees building hives, and fawns taking naps in the shadow of their vines.
Les Pierres Rouges is from vines averaging 30 years old on gentle south facing hillsides with a sandstone/limestone base. Fermented dry it’s a really attractive ‘vin de plaisir’, perfect to drink as an aperitif. On the nose you find hints of mandarin, mint and white flowers, and the palate is zesty and racy, with pears showing on the finish.
