Les Cailloux 2018

$59.00 Sale Save

The 2018 vintage although marked by the intense heat is a promising one which brought about an optimal maturity providing a good concentration of juices. Perhaps the most surprising element is retaining refreshing acidity which in a warm vintage would almost always fall short. 

Les Cailloux with its aromas of lush ripe red fruits is perfectly suited to be consumed young but also possible to be aged. Pairs beautifully in its youth with cold cuts and cheese boards or poultry based based small plates.

Serve chilled around 14°C, decanting is optional.

Domaine Lefort is Racine Wines Co.’s first partnership in Burgundy. After 3 years in the industry, we decided that it was about time we stepped into this prestigious winemaking region and bring you what it has to offer. Founded on 1st July 2010 by David Lefor, David initially started his career practicing medicine but soon found himself obtaining a Master’s Degree from the University Institute of Vine and Wine Jules Guyot. David truly believes in always working organically and his produce reflects that. He also dabbles in a ‘little’ furniture manufacturing by upcycling old wine barrels under Oak Design.
