Red wine

Domaine de la Douaix, Vieilles Vignes 2017

Belgian Gilles Moustie kicked off with the 2006 vintage using vines sold to his father by the Mayor of Arcenant. Spookily, the reds are fermented in tombs. Robust and attractively chewy wine with a chunky texture, plenty of dark matter and a liquorish bite.
