About the area
South Africa’s vineyards are mostly situated in the Western Cape near the coast. This is the southernmost region of the African continent, and has a Mediterranean type climate and diverse soils perfectly suited to quality grape production.
The 2011 harvest in The Western Cape was warmer and dryer than normal, resulting in lower yields, smaller bunches and consequently riper flavors. These seasonal conditions produced sound, fully ripe and healthy grapes, with resultant wines rich, soft and generous in flavor.
From ancient limestone soils in the heart of the Cote de Nuits, ChambolleMusigny is often said to produce the finest reds of all 25 Premier Crus in the area. The Roux Les Charmes shows persistent, delicate aromas of violet, prune, raspberry, and strawberry on the nose and palate.
Bright ruby color, attractive nose with lots of raspberries and ripe cherries, some smoke and licorice. Beautiful intensity in the mouth turn red berry fruit, wonderfully fresh and refreshing, it juicy and elegant binding. Mittele length on the finish. A completely honest and good value Burgundy!
A beautifully balanced bouquet with harmonious aromas of fragrant hawthorn blossoms, citrusy lemongrass, sweet marzipan, and toasted hazelnuts. The fl avors are ripe on this Puligny-Montrachet.
ÒAttitudeÓ has a beautiful freshness in mouth, a frank attack, delicate green and lemon flavours, citrus fruits, green apple and kiwi aromas. The minerality gives a long finish to the wine, a smoothness and elegance – characteristics of all of Pascal JolivetÕs wines.
