2015 Domaine de l'Horizon Blanc, Côtes Catalanes

2015 Domaine de l'Horizon Blanc, Côtes Catalanes

The raw and ruggedly beautiful wind-beaten hillsides of the Pyrenées as they dip into the azure waters of the Mediterranean Sea produce tiny quantities of intensely flavoured wine from gnarled old vines. This has such a rich and complex nose, its flavours range from mango to wild tarragon to salted peanuts all in one swirl of the glass. There is astonishing, salty concentration on the palate; it’s hard to believe this is only 12.5% abv. It is in a perfect moment of maturity right now.

Domaine de l'Horizon

Thomas Tiebert established this domaine in 2006 in the tiny village of Calce, deep in the Catalan landscape of the Pyrenees as France blends into Spain. He bought 17 hectares of old vines that cling to a rocky, windswept hillside overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. The domaine has a fairly natural leaning, cultivating tiny yields of indiginous varieties including Carignan, Grenache, Macabeu and Grenache Gris, and using low-intervention practices in the cellar. Dramatic wines from a dramatic landscape.
