Vin Orange ‘Sipiona’ NSA, Domaine Begude

£15.99

Often (rightly) portrayed as both a rebel and a pioneer, English exile James Kinglake has certainly not tried too hard to simply fit in with the generally conservative wine-making norms of Limoux since buying a vineyard there in 2003. His latest innovation is this Vin Orange ‘Sipiona’, the ancient name for the local village. In common with other ‘orange’ wines the colour is achieved through 6 months extended skin contact for the juice. It’s also zero intervention: no added sulphur or yeast, no fining or filtration, and no oak. The result is dry, elegant and successful. Dry and nutty, with firm tannins and citrus elements. Try it with earthy foods like mushroom risotto or sweet potato gnocchi.

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
