Description of wine 🍷
En buvant cette cuvée 100 % Counoise pleine de fruit et de fraîcheur, vous comprendrez pourquoi ce cépage redevient à la mode à Chateauneuf du Pape...
Le beau gosse sur la photo n'est autre que le père de Pascal Olivier, avec son cheval Ponpon. Hommage dans le nom de cette cuvée a ce cheval pour ses bons et loyaux services rendu à la famille.
Sols argilo calcaires.
Rendement 50 hl par ha.
Vinification classique en cuve inox avec des remontages légers pour ne pas trop extraire de tanins. Maitrise des températures de fermentation.
Dégustation : La robe est rubis sombre, translucide. Le nez est plutôt discret, sur les fruits rouges, les épices et une touche lactée. La bouche est ronde, fraîche, fruitée, avec une matière souple, gourmande, absolument irrésistible. L'équilibre est juste phénoménal. La finale dominée par la griotte (et une touche de framboise) est une tuerie totale. Risque d'addiction très important.

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.
