Cuvée du Loup
After a rainy enough winter replenishing in part the water reserve of ground, the spring was low waters and the summer incredibly dry and hot. The spring gel touched a big part of the vineyard in Provence, but we have been saving fact the remarkable situation of our terroir. The vines, despite heat and water stress, product a beautiful quality vintage but decline to 10% in volume because of the historical drought.
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 which improves the grapes quality.
Clairette 70% and Rolle 30%.
We wait that the grapes reach their maturity, and then we make the harvest by hand. It is make early in the morning to keep a small temperature. We also have a cooling machine to refresh the grapes arriving in the cellar when outside temperature is too hot to keep the flavour inside the fruits , and so the quality is conserved.
Skin contact – press – clarification and fermentation in oak barrels during 4 months. Half of this barrels are new and half are one year old.
Round in the mouth and fleshy, this wine is good with seafood, white meat, foie gras and cheeses. It will be a good accompaniment of your gastronomic meals.
