Coup de foudres
After a very rainy winter during which our department broke rainfall records, spring and summer have been dry and mild.
We harvested was high quality but because of the dry, the quantity has been 10% lower than the past vintage.
A complex soil with clay and sandstone coloured deep red by the iron oxide, refreshed by the salt air of the Mediterranean sea. The soil is very well drained so that is very good for the quality of the grapes.
The grapes are around 35 years old. This wine is made from 50% Syrah, 15% Carignan, 15% Mourvedre, and 20% Grenache.
We wait that the grapes reach their maturity, and then we make the harvest by hand. We also have a system to refresh the harvest when it is arriving in the cellar : a cooling machine. This is to keep the flavour inside the fruits.
The grapes are in tanks for maceration during 2 weeks to 3 weeks. They are being pressed, after maceration, then clarified and finally fermented. The temperature is controlled at all the different stages. (Around 18°C).
The wine stays around 2 years in very big oak barrels called « Foudres » (50 to 90 hectolitres).
Brown reflections color. Expressive nose spicy, clove, pepper and notes of leather, game birds evolving aromas of fruit brandy, prunes, cherries. Attack soft mouth and evolution gently. The tannins are ripe and well-developed persistent. A wine ready to be enjoyed. This wine is excellent with all meat, cheeses. It is very good with all your regional cooking.
