Features

L'idée qui se cache derrière ce vin est de créer un rouge agréable et accessible tout en gardant la profondeur, les notes minérales et la complexité des vins du Douro.

Sol : schiste

Vignes : différentes entre 10 et 40 ans - 4000 pieds/ha - 100-500 m d'altitude - Taille Guyot et Royat

Cépages : Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Amarela et autres

Vendange : manuelle en septembre

Fermentation : en cuves inox

Élevage : 14 mois dans des barriques en chêne français et des tonneaux de vieux bois (25 %) et dans des cuves en inox (75 %)

Dégustation : La robe est grenat sombre translucide. Le nez est gourmand et complexe, sur le coulis de mûre, le poivre, l'encens, la réglisse... La bouche est ronde, ample, veloutée, déployant une matière dense et mûre, charnue, sur une palette aromatique très forêt noire, entre cerise noire confite et chocolat. Il en ressort une impression de grande fraîcheur, alors que le pH annoncé est élevé (3.89). L'altitude n'y est probablement pas pour rien. Les notes mentholées non plus. La finale possède une mâche savoureuse, dominée par les épices douces et les fruits noirs compotés. Puis vient le cuir, la réglisse qui fait son retour, ainsi que la cannelle et des notes poivrées qui persistent assez longuement.

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.
