2020 Chateau Ste Eulalie Minervois Plasir d'Eulalie
Laurent and Isabelle Coustal continue to push the envelope on quality, once again fashioning an outstanding Château Sainte Eulalie Plaisir d’Eulalie Minervois in 2020. Decadent, juicy, round, and beautifully textured, the 2020 Plaisir d’Eulalie (40% Carignan, 30% Grenache, 30% Syrah) bursts with dark berry and plum fruit flavors, all beautifully wrapped in plush tannins. Dense but smooth on the palate, the 2020 Plaisir d’Eulalie highlights the sterling quality of old vines from Minervois in the exceptional 2020 vintage. It captures all of the senses with its deep purple robe, savory aromatics, dense fruit, and powerful lingering finish, replete with a cornucopia of berries, violets, pepper, and garrigue.
Chateau Ste. Eulalie is located in the Minervois region of France’s Languedoc, midway between Narbonne and the Medieval town of Carcassonne. The snowy peaks of the Pyrenees can be seen on the horizon and Narbonne and the Mediterranean lie 45 minutes to the south.
The estate is comprised of 34 hectares on terraces 200 meters above the town of La Liviniere. Long regarded as the finest section of Minervois, La Liviniere has now been recognized as an official "Cru de Languedoc" and is entitled to its own appellation.
The stony soil of clay and limestone is planted with Syrah, Grenache, Carignan and Cinsault, with an average age of 25 years. The domaine also includes some century-old Carignan vines and 70 year-old Grenache.
Winemaker's Tasting Notes
The 2020 Minervois Plaisir d'Eulalie is round and fruity. A "pleasure" wine to be opened at the last moment with tapas or a salad! The palate is dense with silky smooth tannins. Full, round and smooth, a very easy drinking wine. Elegant finish with lasting fruit and slightly spicy note.
