Cuvée du Loup
After a rainy winter, replenishing mostly the water reserves of the soil, spring was moderately watered and the summer incredibly hot and dry. The vines, although they have suffered from heat and water stress, produced a very good quality grape harvest in normal quantities.
A complex soil with clay and sandstone coloured deep red by the iron oxide, refreshed by the salt air of the Mediterranean Sea. The soil is very well drained which improves the grapes quality.
Grapes varieties :
Grenache 70%, Syrah 25% and Mourvèdre 5%.
We wait that the grapes reach their maturity, and then we make the harvest by hand. It is made early in the morning to keep a small temperature. We also have a cooling machine to refresh the grapes arriving in the cellar when outside temperature is too hot to keep the flavour inside the fruits, and so the quality is conserved.
Skin contact – press – clarification and fermentation in oak barrels during 4 months. Half of this barrels are new and half are one year old.
Round in the mouth and fleshy, this wine is good with seafood, white meat, foie gras and cheeses. It will be a good accompaniment of your gastronomic meals.
