Description of the wine 🍷
'Deliciously biting, on sour cherry, pomegranate and smoke, with a hint of spice'
Grape variety: Young vines of Soreli , a naturally resistant grape variety that allows viticulture without any treatment. He is of Italian origin, from Friulano. It is a white grape variety from Veneto.
Terroir: On clayey-sandy soils.
Management of the vine: Pruned in short size on cord, organic viticulture.
Method of vinification: Destemmed harvest, without sulphite, natural fermentation in concrete vats, gentle extraction by punching down, vatting for 15 days until the end of fermentation.
Aging: Coules and presses are assembled, the wine is aged partly in stainless steel vats and partly in tuns, without sulphites.
Bottling: Racked, blended and bottled in the spring, slight sulphiting at bottling.
Tasting: the brilliant dress is of an intense coppery. The nose is expressive, on apricot/orange marmalade, chestnut crumb, faded rosé and spices. The palate is round, very ample, enveloping, unrolling a dense, velvety, slightly tannic substance, of great aromatic intensity, mixing roasted yellow fruits with candied citrus peel. The whole gives off an impression of freshness and dynamism due to a fine acidity in the background. This is more apparent in a concentrated finish with an imposing tannic chewiness, underlined by the bitterness of the orange. These persist for a long time; accompanied by sweet spices.
What is an author wine?
This can be so diverse depending on the personality of their parent, that it is easier to define what it is not. An author's wine is anything but a standard, stereotyped wine, made to please the greatest number. It is therefore rarely produced in millions of copies, copying itself from vintage to vintage.
An author's wine is therefore a wine that does not resemble that of its neighbour. Who from year to year will evolve according to the vagaries of the weather and the mood of the author – the two can be linked. Because the author does not rely on market studies to lead his boat. He makes his wine as he feels, as he likes it, as he can, sometimes... And too bad if not everyone likes it.
This is why signature wines are sometimes classified as “table wine” or “vin de France”. Because the winemaker has not planted the authorized grape variety*, made the assembly or the vinification recommended in the appellation**. He is often a bit rebellious, our author. But that's why we love it!... That said, signature wines are not always marginal: they are present in most appellations, and can be part of the elite of these. this***. Because they don't just have personality: they're good, too! Generally with a very high degree of torchability : you never get tired of it after the first sip.
As auteur wines are not chaptalized, yeasted, tweaked...they can present very different profiles depending on the vintage. It is up to us (retailers and consumers) to accept them as they are, and to remain loyal to the producers, because they need us to continue their activity.
* For example, the Touriga Nacional in the Minervois, or the Syrah in the Côtes du Forez. They are crazy, these authors!
** Some winegrowers dare to produce sweet wines with Mourvèdre or a natural sparkling wine with Pineau d'Aunis
*** like those of Jean-François Ganevat in the Jura or Zind-Humbrecht in Alsace
