Domaine Philippe Viet 2019 Régnié Haute-Ronze "Mosaïque"
Philippe Viet’s Mosaïque cuvée comes from select 50 year old vines in Régnié’s Haute-Ronze terroir – Régnié’s beloved terroir sitting just above 300 meters in elevation with soils loaded with granitic sand and gravel, as well as various deposits of clay. Viet follows the same methodology in processing for the Mosaïque as he does for his standard Haute-Ronze bottling up until elevage – whole bunch fermentation in concrete with no added sulfurs, 17 day maceration with extremely gentle pressing afterwards – however, the select vines are then aged in a roughly 2:1 mix of sandstone amphora and stainless steel tank. The results show just deep the wines of Régnié can go, here the giving fruits of Régnié turn black, tinged with licorice, ripe acids and surprising length.
