HISTORY "This wine was only produced twice: 2008 and 2012.
Closely linked to Sète, a port that was once a wine trading port and where sea bream fishing is still practised, the cuvée evokes this quay of the Bordigue where sea breams were kept in large wooden cages under water."
GRAPE VARIETIES 100% Grenache
TERROIR Very calcareous, lake limestone, white earth.
CLIMATE Mediterranean, hot and dry. Plot that slopes in all directions, facing north.
VINIFICATION "The cuvée has only been produced twice, in two vintages: 2008 and 2012.
The Grenache vat, always from the same plot, then fermented patiently and very slowly in several phases."
AGEING Its fermentation and maturing was also very slow and lasted for more than two years in vats.
TASTING The colour of the wine and its aromas remind us of oxidative notes of morello cherries, smoke and spices. It is a very open wine with a very smooth mouthfeel.
