Location St Laurent de la Cabrerisse, 140 m altitude, orientation north/north-west
Culture Organic wine – Ecocert certification since 1991
Grape varietals, vinification and maturation 100% Cinsault from the vineyard named L’Olivette. Grapes are destemmed and crushed, then matured for 2 months in concrete vats, after which the wine is bottled. No added sulphites (SO2T<4 ; SO2L<3).
Eye Delicate colour with hints of violet
Nose Intense notes of thyme and rosemary. The nose then opens up a little more to produce more subtle aromas of peony and raspberry.
Palate Delicate, fruity and generous at the same time. More intense than the 2018, but still suave and with a strong Mediterranean identity. This is pure Cinsault in all its aromatic glory.
Tips on service Serve around 14°C
Food matching Iberico pork chops with thyme, capon with rosemary, pasta with parma ham and sage, or on its own under the pergola…
