Soil Clay-limestone, hillside position with large rounded stones
Location Terroir de Boutenac, at an altitude of 150-200 m, North-north-west facing Culture Ecocert certification – organically grown grapes with no pesticides or herbicides. Wine made with organic grapes since 1991
Grape varietals 80% Carignan, 20% Mourvèdre. Carbonic maceration of the Carignan from the St Jean parcel of land, and the Mourvèdre from the La Tour vineyard, vinified together. Matured for 6 months in vats and for 2 years in bottle

Tasting notes:

Eye Deep red with violet glints demonstrating an excellent maturity as well as a seductive youth.
Nose Very concentrated with notes of blackberry, black pepper and liquorice. Subtle secondary aromas of thyme and fresh fig.
Palate The idea behind L’Echappée Belle is a different approach to the Carignan which grows so easily on our terroir, focussing on the benefits of our organic methods. This wine, full-bodied, taut and crisp, has its own personality, impossible to find elsewhere. The 2016 is characterised more by a softness than the 2015, and the balance and depth of flavour will carry L’Echappée Belle into the 10 or fifteen years to come.

Tips on service Serve between 16° and 18°.
Food matching Quails with truffles, entrecôte steak, coq au vin, lamb en croûte with thyme. The chef Marc Schwab even suggests pairing with dark chocolat..
