Domaine Sainte Eugénie
Domaine Sainte Eugénie says it is 'where Burgundian know-how meets Languedoc terroir', and the winemaker José Ratero, who made wine in Meursault for twenty-five years, seeks to preserve fruit, use oak only in moderation, and make versatile food-friendly wines.
José Ratero who has over 25 Years’ experience making Burgundy in Meursault. Domaine Sainte Eugénie (Languedoc – west of Narbonne) currently has 60 hectares of vines growing on clay and limestone gravel. When you couple the Mediterranean climate with José’s patience before harvest (to have the grapes at perfect ripeness), the results produce a versatile red wine which can be enjoyed with almost anything or absolutely nothing. Ripe, soft and medium bodied the wine has a right bank Bordeaux feel to it which is maybe not so surprising when you see what grapes are used: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache and Carignan. A feel good wine at a very sensible price
