Gris de Gris

AOC Corbières

 

 

 

 

Soil
Silica-clay-limestone; gritty and gravely with some pudding stones.
Grapes
70% Grenache Gris and Grenache Noir; 10% Mourvèdre; 10% Carignan; 10% Cinsault.
Vinification

A rosé bled from the vat. The grapes are harvested by hand and kept whole. After a natural settling of the juice for 24 hours, the alcoholic fermentation takes place at 18°C for 35 days. The malolactic fermentation is of course blocked and the wine rests for 1 month before bottling, preserving all the freshness and intensity of its aromas.

   
Eye
A crystalline salmon colour with superb amethyst tints. Fine separate legs run slowly down the glass.
Nose
Expressive and particularly tonic, the wine immediately gives off notes of raspberry, cherry and freshly picked strawberries - followed by exotic aromas such as pineapple and mango.

 Palate
A direct and considerable freshness - the density and richness of the fruit mingle with the superb acid vitality giving a wine with a frisson and a magnificent persistency.
 In summary
Stunningly balanced, this is an extremely appetent wine! Ideal as an aperitif with toast and crushed olives, or with wok-fried vegetables and garlic mayonnaise, grilled fish, lamb tajine, finely roasted guinea-fowl with rosemary...
