Cuvée des Sommeliers 2012

Cuvée des Sommeliers 2012

Optimal conditions during the harvest. Fruity, round wines, with an attractive color.

Soil: chalky-clay, pebbles, sandy soil.

Grapes : 70 % grenache, 15 % mourvèdre, syrah 10 %, 5 % cinsault
Yield : 30hl / ha
Wine making: Grapes are de-stemmed and blended together in thermo-regulated concrete tanks. The maceration lasts between 21 and 30 days. After 3 months, half of the wine goes into oak barrels while the rest stays in concrete tanks. Approximately 18 months after harvesting, the wine is finally bottled. 

Aging : We usually consider that the wine reaches its best between its 4th and 5th year, but you can keep it longer in good storage conditions (cool and dry place, constant temperature)
