Description of wine 🍷

Cépages : 85% Carignan Blanc / 15% Carignan Gris

Terroir : Carignan de + de 60 ans / Sols granitiques avec +/- d’argile et de matière organique / Une grande partie des vignes de rouges sont co-plantées avec des pieds de Carignan Blanc et Gris / Jusqu’à l’année dernière nous ne mettions que les raisins blanc, cette année nous avons ramassé également comme prévu les gris / Cette cuvée provient du tri des parcelles de rouges de Caramany /

Rendement : 32 hl/ha (moyenne de la cave en blanc).

Vinification : Vendanges manuelles / Pressurage direct / Débourbage à froid / Fermentation en cuve / Dès que la fermentation est terminée,on enlève les grosses lies le plus vite possible.

Elevage : Cuve sur lies fines / Filtration tangentielle avant mise en bouteille

Dégustation : la robe est jaune très pâle, brillante. Le nez est fin, frais, sur le lemon curd et la craie humide. La bouche est vive, élancée, tendue par une acidité tranchante qui s'étire au delà-même de la finale. Elle est enrobée d'une matière pure, cristalline, très "eau de roche, avec une aromatique très sobre sur le citron frais et des notes caillouteuses. La finale poursuit la dynamique de la bouche avec l'acidité en fil conducteur en y ajoutant une touche crayeuse et sallne des plus classieuses, avec une note citronnée en dernière sensation.

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.


* For example, theTouriga Nacionalin the Minervois, or theSyrahIn Forez ribs. They are crazy, these authors!

** Some winegrowers dare to produceSweety with Mourvèdre or oneNatural sparkling with Pineau d'Aunis

*** Like those of Jean-François Ganevat in the Jura or Zind-Humbercht in Alsace
