Cépage : Le domaine Pero Longo donne la priorité aux cépages corses et le Nielluccio est roi. Conduit par Pierre Richarme, en culture biodynamique, sans engrais, ni pesticide. A quoi bon le rendement, ici on recherche la qualité.

Vinification : Le « Lion de Roccapina » demande un soin tout particulier : macération à froid puis fermentation alcoolique. Macération d’une trentaine de jour avec délestages, pigeages et remontages. Elevage du vin sur lies fines en barriques pendant 15 à 18 mois. Il faut laisser le temps faire son œuvre.

Dégustation : Plonger votre regard dans celui du « Lion » et vous en comprendrez toute la majesté. Ce vin est limpide et brillant de couleur cerise noire intense et profonde. Son nez est complexe et charmeur, sur les fruits noirs (mûres, cassis), boisé avec des notes balsamiques (résine) et de garrigue (thym, myrthe). Sa bouche est très ample, avec une belle concentration tannique, beaucoup de fruits mûrs et une belle longueur aromatique sur des notes boisée et de maquis.

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
