Cuvée presentation

Connaissez-vous Daniel Sage ? Vous devriez ! Le vigneron travaille en effet sainement aussi bien dans les vignes qu’en cave. Les vinifications se font sans intrant et grâce aux levures indigènes. Cet ancien tôlier, reconverti donc, signe ici cette cuvée baptisée Nyctalopie et classée en vin de France. Elle se révèle être un assemblage de gamay et de pinot noir, deux jolis cépages délicats et délicieusement fruités.
La dégustation nous dévoile un vin à la robe rubis pâle de laquelle s’échappent des notes particulièrement fruitées. On retrouve des arômes de cerise griotte, de framboise, de fraise, de prune et de groseille. Une note graphite élégante se fait aussi sentir. La bouche se montre soyeuse, fluide et juteuse. Nous apprécions son fruit intense et sa gourmandise qui lui permettent d’être apprécié dès aujourd’hui, le temps d’un apéritif dinatoire ou accompagné de mets simples. Nous pensons ainsi à des grillades, un écrasé de patate douce ou un petit salé de lentilles.

Information about domain Daniel Sage

A favourite in the space of just a few years, it wasn't in the original plan for Daniel Sage to take the secateurs in hand. With his diploma in metal work, he came to the art of wine-making quite late. He learnt in Ardèche where some friends experienced in the industry helped him to take his first steps. His three hectares are composed of granite and gneiss, in which he grows Gamay, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Chardonnay, Viognier and Poulsard. Apart from a small dose of copper and sulphur, Daniel limits the use of additives and works the steep slopes on a horse. To vinify the grape juice, indigenous yeasts are left to do their work, and he is keen to be a bit experimental with skin-contact maceration, for example. And all of his cuvées are notably accomplished!
