Fabrice Dodane took over Domaine de Saint Pierre in 2011 after Philippe Moyne, the celebrated founder of the Domaine, passed. Aa a strong supporter of organics and biodynamics, Fabrice brought it into organic certification in 2012. The Dos d'Chat range was started after a hail storm decimated his crop, and this is his third year releasing wines under this fantastic négociant label.

The Dos d'Chat 2019 Trousseau 'Les Corvées' has a cherry core and brickish edges. The nose is dense and floral, with aromas of blueberries, cherry, strawberries and a touch of rich Autumnal woods and dark violets. Plum and cherry on the palate create the foundation for minerally iron and fresh black pepper. Structure is grippy, with a healthy, zippy middle and good acidity. There is a refreshing tingle on the finish, with a bitter touch of graphite and cherry peel. Absolutely perfect for chilly nights - and gets fuller, darker, and warmer in flavours after a day open!
