Domaine Achard-Vincent, Clairette de Die Brut Non Vintage

Achard-Vincent Brut

100% Clairette.  BIO/organic. From the Drôme Valley around Die, between the northern and southern Rhône regions. Unknown disgorgement date; current release.

Yellow-gold.  Blunt with an in-your-face florality and sticky phenolics.  Rusticity with a tilt towards ham-fisted …  like a pagan chant in the mouth.  For a wine described as ‘fermented dry’ we find this sweet without complexity.   Not for us.
