2020 Domaine Danjou-Banessy “Supernova” MOURVEDRE, Languedoc Roussillon France
This wine comes from from the Languedoc Roussillon, an area blessed with a high altitude as well as a Mediterannean climate, perfect conditions for wine growing! Passionate winemaker Benoit Danjou and his brother Sebastien inherited this old vineyard from their grandfather. They slowly evolved the vineyard to practice organic methods, and focus their production on still whites and reds. The old vines in this vineyard create wine with character and depth. They adopt a minimum intervention approach to this specific wine which makes it lighter than most Mourvedre from the same area. Plenty of spices and red fruits, yet a rounded and pleasant wine, characteristics which can be credited to the warm temperatures in the south of France.
