Magnum Jas d'Esclans
The winter was particularly wet and mild. Thus, the first buds of the year appeared in early March. Unfortunately, at the end of March, the frost affected our vines for 2 nights (down to -4.3 ° C) and greatly impacted the quantity of the harvest.
The wet spring and the very dry and hot summer allowed the bunches of grapes to mature in good conditions.
Ideally located in the heart of the Esclans Valley between the Esterel and Maures mountains, the domain benefits from a stony clay-sandstone soil of red color, particularly well drained, which helps producing quality grapes and wines.
This wine is blended exclusively from organic grapes.
Grenache, Cinsault, Tibouren, Mourvèdre and Syrah.
The harvest is launched when the phenolic maturities are at their optimum. Each grape variety is harvested separately plot by plot in order to harvest grapes at perfect maturity.
This wine is vinified in accordance with the organic wine charter.
The mechanically harvested grapes are placed directly in the inert presses for a maceration of a few hours.
After maceration, pressing is carried out completely in the absence of air. The juices are left to settle for 24 to 48 hours. After settling and re-incorporation of the filtered muds, the juices are stored in the cold for 4 to 5 days before starting the fermentation. Fermentations start with the addition of selected exogenous yeasts. They last one week at controlled temperature (17-18 ° C). Then, the wines are under drawn and stored before blending.
Pale salmon pink color. Fine nose of red fruit, lychee, apricot and dried fruit. The mouth is balanced, all round, ending with notes of candied fruit.
It is a fresh and fruity wine to accompany your aperitifs, grills, or Provençal meals.
