Domaine Rimbert "Cousin Oscar"
Cousin Oscar is a highly drinkable, thirst-quenching red Jean-Marie made for fun. Its label is a combination of designs Jean-Marie put together from 50’s magazines. He named the wine after his girlfriend’s cousin (Oscar) who is apparently irresistible to the ladies.
Grapes: Cinsault (organic estate-grown), Pinot Noir (purchased sustainable grapes) from Languedoc-Roussillion
Making of: the grapes are de-stemmed, crushed and undergo a gentle maceration of the grapes without remontage, for 3 days only in order to get only a very little extraction. The wine is spontaneously fermented and then aged in tanks, lightly filtered and fined, and bottled the following spring with a little addition of sulfur.
