Nicolas Badel Intuition 2014

Nicolas Badel Intuition

Intution is a special project by Nicolas Badel. It is sourced from his IGP Collines Rhodaniennes vineyards surrounding his winery. These secluded hillside vineyards were recently reclaimed and are planted with mostly Syrah.

Vinification The wine is fermented in stainless steel and then aged in a combination of 20% new barrels and 80% 1-year-old barrels.

Tasting Notes Wild, complex aromatics: black fruits, forest mushrooms, stones, barnyard, peppery spice, and a touch of wood. On the palate is is nimble yet solid, with a long concentrated finish. Let this one breathe for a few hours for maximum effect.
