Gewürztraminer , ‘Le Secret du Sud’, Domaine Begude

£10.99

Although predominantly grown in Alsace and Germany, Gewürztraminer (the ‘Earl Grey’ wine) is becoming increasingly popular elsewhere (see for example our ‘Marouette’ from Languedoc and ‘Adobe’ from Chile). It’s not common in Limoux though where altitude and a north-west facing vineyard have enabled James Kinglake to give his vines cool enough conditions for this wine to find a voice. It’s low in both acidity and sugar making it drier than many examples. It has characteristic lychee and rose petal aromas though with less intensity than some and leads on to memorable lemon posset flavours with a distinct silky mouthfeel.

Domaine Begude

English couple Catherine & James Kinglake bought the 29 hectare Domaine Begude in 2003. They identified the region of Limoux as an exciting cool climate area in South of France and have approx 60% Chardonnay , 20% Pinot Noir and 20% “aromatics” of Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier, Gewurztraminer & Gruner Veltliner. The stellar Franco-Australian wine making team produces elegant fruit-driven wines which are enjoyed around the world.

“The best of these (Limoux) wines represent some of the finest wine value available anywhere. It must be so frustrating for a producer such as James Kinglake of Begude, for instance, who knows that he makes truly fine Chardonnay and Pinot Noir yet sees it selling for a fraction of the price of some extremely ordinary burgundies”. Jancis Robinson, MW July 2016
