Magnum Jas d'Esclans
The winter was particularly wet and mild. Thus, the first buds of the year appeared in early March. Unfortunately, at the end of March, the frost affected our vines for 2 nights (down to -4.3 ° C) and greatly impacted the quantity of the harvest.
The wet spring and the very dry and hot summer allowed the bunches of grapes to mature in good conditions.
Ideally located in the heart of the Esclans Valley between the Esterel and Maures mountains, the domain benefits from a stony clay-sandstone soil of red color, particularly well drained, which helps producing quality grapes and wines.
This wine is blended exclusively from organic grapes. Rolle, Ugni-Blanc and Clairette. The harvest for the Rolle began on September 8. Harvest are performed very early in the morning to get cold grapes in our cellar. It facilitates the smooth running of the fermentations. We are equipped of a tubular exchanger to cool the harvest to preserve the aromas during the pressing phase.
This wine is vinified in accordance with the organic wine charter. The mechanically harvested grapes are placed directly in the inert presses for a maceration of a few hours. After maceration, pressing is carried out completely in the absence of air. The juices are left to settle for 24 to 48 hours. After settling and re-incorporation of the filtered muds, the juices are stored in the cold for 4 to 5 days before starting the fermentation. Fermentations start with the addition of selected exogenous yeasts. They last one week at controlled temperature (17-18 ° C). Then, the wines are under drawn and stored before blending.
Shiny white gold color. Expressive nose of peach, pear, exotic fruits and citrus. The mouth is fresh, aromatic with a finish on pink pomelo and apricot. This dry wine is to be drunk with crustaceans, shellfish, seafood, grilled fish or simply as an aperitif.
