An ethereal wine from Loïc Roure’s Domaine du Possible


If the wines of Bruno Duchêne (Bruno Duchene), Cyril Fhal (Domaine Clos du Rouge Gorge), and Jean-Louis Tribouley (Jean-Louis Tribouley) entice you then you must try the wines of Loïc Roure (Domaine du Possible).  Rather than re-hashing background information I suggest you read Domaine du Possible: Côtes du Roussillon from Loïc Roure.  The 2013 Domaine du Possible, Charivari, Cotes du Roussillon is one of those ethereal yet impossibly aromatic, flavorful, and mouth filling wines.  It has true barnyard aromas, which may not be for everyone, followed by a balance of delicately ripe fruit, minerals, acidity, and structure.  It is different than what I have drunk from the Côtes du Roussillon and is just generally unique.  This is “natural wine” done right.  This wine was purchased at MacArthur Beverages.

2013 Domaine du Possible, Charivari, Côtes du Roussillon – $26
Imported by Louis/Dressner.  This wine is 100% Carignan sourced from vines 30-106 years old on soils of gneiss that underwent 100% Carbonic maceration.  Alcohol ?%.  Barnyard and natural wine aromas immediately wafted from the glass.   In the mouth was a hint of sparkle on the tongue tip for this lighter yet filling wine.  The flavors had less earth and barnyard than the nose.  The gentle, ripe flavors mixed with minerals and were generally clean before a  touch of barnyard returned in the finish.  There was a very long and ethereal aftertaste.  This wine remained balanced with delicately ripe fruit, minerals, and minimal structure suggesting a wine for now rather than aging.  **** Now-2016.
