Sous Le Végétal
2019 Sous Le Végétal 'Hüpnos' Muscat Petit Grain - Ligas x Bouju
Jason Ligas (Domaine Ligas) x Patrick Bouju (La Bohéme) in Samos using revived Moscatel vines for a wild moon walk. The 'Livia' is from Muscat Petit Grain in Pagondas village, Samos. The soils are shale and quartz and this imparts strong saline and mineral notes from the volcanic soils. The wine is rich in pears, peaches and zesty lemon, with this intense sea air and touch of brown butter. Stunning complex wine that needs some thought and deserves food.
