Hidden gems : Odysse

Today we bring to your attention a wonderful blend between the tannic structure of the great wines of the Médoc and the charm, finesse and friendliness of the wines of the Rhône Valley.
The newborn of this union between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea is an elegant and unique wine named Odysse. This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (61%), Grenache (32%) and Counoise (7%) ensures a beautiful synergy thanks to the complementary nature of their terroirs and grape varieties.

The power and tension of the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes overlooking the Gironde estuary from their deep gravelly hilltops blend perfectly with the elegance and delicacy of the old Grenache, grown according to the gobelet pruning system on clay-limestone terraces. Counoise, an ancient and forgotten grape variety from the Rhône Valley, adds complexity and freshness to a vintage that is structured and generous in both regions.

Odyssée 2018 is very well balanced, with beautiful ripeness but still fresh and balanced. Suave and luscious, Odyssée is aromatically intense, combining small black fruit and notes of garrigue. Its tannins are very present on the palate and already silky and perfectly integrated.
