La Demoiselle

AOC Corbières

 

 

 

 

Soil
Silica-clay-limestone; gritty and gravely with some pudding stones.
Grapes

60% Carignan - 100 yrs old; 30% Grenache Noir;

10% Mourvèdre.

Vinification
The whole grapes, picked over-mature (harvested in October), are placed in the vat for a 15-day temperature-controlled carbonic maceration. The wine stays in the vat for six months before being put in barrels.
Eye
Limpid and garnet-coloured, darkened by purple tints. The coloured legs run slowly and cling to the glass.
Nose
The penetrating bouquet offers up a festival of aromas including jammy red fruits, vanilla pods, pepper and freshly-milled nutmeg. Emblematic notes of the garrigue heath mingle with this supremely harmonious ensemble.
