WHY WE LOVE IT
- The Cuvée Vieilles Vignes is produced manly from La Crau and associated with some Mouvedre on sandy soil.
- This wine is silkily rich with marvellous ageing potential.
Varietal Composition: 90 % Grenache, 10% Mourvedre
Elaboration: Enormous care is taken at harvest time. It is done in a traditional method: hand-picked harvest with a selective sorting of grapes in the vineyard and at the cellar (by using a sorting table), which are proofs of quality. We kept 25% whole clusters in this Cuvée. The vinification has be done in tronconic oak vats. The alcoholic fermentation lasts 4 to 5 weeks with different operations : A release, punching of the cap and pumping over. The malolactic fermentation is made in demi-muids and oak vats. Elevage continues in oak vats and in demi-muids
Tasting Notes: This cuvée boasts hints of licorice, dark fruits and balsamic notes. The mouth offers a great density with a very long finish.
