Description of wine 🍷

Cépage : 100 % Grenache Gris

Origine : France

Terroir : Schiste de Maury et de Villeneuve des Corbières / Massif Pyrénéen.

Conduite de la vigne : Gobelet.

Mode de vinification : Macération de Grenache Gris en cuve de quelques jours avant départ en fermentation / Pressurage / Passage à froid / Fermentation naturelle en fûts de 2 à 3 vins.

Élevage : Elevage en fûts non-ouillés, assemblage de fûts après élevage de 18 à 40 mois.

Dégustation : la robe est orange, tirant légèrement vers l'ambré. Le nez est intense, touffu, complexe, sur la banane flambée au rhum, l'écorce d'orange séchée, la liqueur de noix, le souk oriental... La bouche est très ample, vous nappant le moindre mm² de votre palais d'une matière dense, veloutée, donnant plus l'impression d'être solide que liquide – tout en ayant paradoxalement un côté très aérien, presque gazeux. Enfin, goûtez, vous comprendrez mieux ce que je veux dire. Dans un registre plus estival, on pourrait évoquer une énorme vague qui avance lentement, mais sûrement, et finit par vous submerger complètement, vous noyant dans un océan aromatique. La finale dévoile une mâche énergique, puissante, avec une intensification des épices et des notes de rancio (noix, cararamel, café), le tout soutenu par un mix acidité/amertume/astringence, et persistant très longuement sur la noix grillée et le fenugrec.

What is an author wine?

This can be so diverse depending on the personality of their sire, that it is easier to define what it is not. An author wine is anything but a standard, stereotypical wine, made to please as many people as possible. It is therefore rarely produced in millions of copies, copying itself from vintage in vintage.

An author wine is therefore a wine that does not look like that of the neighbor. Which from year to year will evolve according to the vagaries of the weather and the mood of the author - the two that can be linked. Because the author does not rely on market studies to carry out his boat. He makes his wine as he feels, as he likes, as he can, sometimes ... and too bad if he does not please everyone.

This is why author wines are sometimes classified as "table wine" or "France wine". Because the winemaker did not plan the authorized grape variety*, makes the assembly or vinification recommended in the name **. He is often a bit rebellious, our author. But that is why we like it! ... That said, author's wines are not systematically marginal: they are present in most of the appellations, and can be part of the elite of these this***. Because they are not content to have personality: they are good, in addition! With in general aDegree of TorchabilityVery high: we never tire of it at the end of the first sip.

As author's wines are not chaptalized, levied, hacked ... They can have very different profiles depending on the vintage. It is up to us (resellers and consumers) to accept them as they are, and to remain faithful to the producers, because they need us to continue their activity.
