70 % Négrette - 30 % Syrah


Les vignes sont situées sur la plus haute terrasse du Tarn à environ 200 m d'altitude. Les sols sont des alluvions composés essentiellement de cailloux, graves, et limons. Ils confèrent à la vigne une vigueur controlée adaptée à la production d'un raisin de qualité.


La recette est simple : Un travail de la vigne au plus proche du terroir, sans engrais ni désherbants, en privilégiant les produits naturels, la récolte d’une vendange très mure, très saine et triée.


Les rendements sont très faibles, de l’ordre de 30 hl/ha. Afin de respecter la typicité du terroir et des cépages, nous n’utilisons que les levures naturelles présentes sur la peau du raisin au moment des vendanges. Les vinifications se font cépage par cépage. Dès le deuxième soutirage, les vins sont mis en barriques. lls y accomplissent leur fermentation malolactique. Pour cette cuvée, nous avons utilisé des barriques de trois et quatre vins afin de préserver tout le fruit originel du raisin. Deux soutirages environ nous conduisent à la mise en bouteille environ 18 mois après l'entonnage.

Attention : la vin contient du gaz carbonique. Aération dynamique conseillée pour s'en débarrasser.

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
