A brilliant silver colour with an initial delicate mineral nose of flint, which opens up to lemon and nutmeg. In the mouth it is punchy, dynamic with a thirst quenching finish with notes of fresh pineapple.
"Domaine du Météore is honoured to be chosen to work together with the Van Gogh Museum and delighted to launch these wines which we have been working on together for over two years. I like to think that, like the swirling colours in Van Gogh's masterpieces, our wines embody the essence of artistic expression. Just as Van Gogh found inspiration in the beauty of the world around him, we draw inspiration from the unique landscape that surrounds our vineyard. My family has a long-held fondness for his art, with my son painting several oil paintings of our Domaine in his style and using the impasato technique.”(Co-ownerPaulJenkins)
Named after the 200m wide meteorite crater that lies at the heart of the estate, Domaine du Meteore is located high up in the schist soils of the Languedoc mountains. The vines are currently farmed organically with conversion to biodynamics underway and a terroir-driven, minimal-intervention approach is taken to wine making.
