Odyssee 2018

Pierre Graffeuille

Case Format: 6x75cl

This is an intriguing wine and passion project from two great vignerons – Pierre Graffeuille of legendary Second Growth Léoville Las Cases and Matthieu Dumarcher. Matthieu brings his extensive knowledge as a natural wine producer in the Rhône Valley, creating some of the most interesting low intervention wines to date. Both Matthieu and Pierre dreamed of creating a beautiful wine that married both terroirs from the Rhône and Haut Médoc. Initially Odyssée used Syrah from the Northern Rhône in the blend with Cabernet Sauvignon from the Haut Médoc in its inaugural 2015 vintage. Though both the Rhône Valley and the Médoc are separated by a great distance, the varietals local to each area go fantastically well together. Each vintage of Odyssée is a harmonious union of both the energy and tannin from rustic Old Vine Cabernet Sauvignon, coupled with the charm and drinkability of Southern Rhône Valley wines. The wine is aged in French barrels and carefully integrated with the oak as not to compete with the fruity qualities of the Rhône varietals. Odyssée is truly a special project, capturing both the treasures of the Rhône and Médoc.

Tom Parker MW

Spicy, heady red fruit on the nose that is a little jammy. The palate follows, sweet with strawberry jam and silky in tannin. Round and hedonistic, a fully ripe expression of fruit. (TP)

A project from the winemaking pairing of Philippe Grafeuille of Léoville Las Cases and Matthieu Dumarcher, organic Côtes du Rhône specialist, this is intense on the nose with rich red fruits, black pepper, scrubland and liquorice spice. Lovely tannin structure and overall weight with flavour that just grips the palate in the best way and drives to the finish. Lots of direction and pleasant drinkability with the potential to age.
