Duché D’Uzès Rouge 2017
Powerful, fruity and spicy with a distinct touch of pepper. It is full in the palate, characterised by aromas of violets and liquorice, nicely complemented by notes of roasting. The tannins are supple and velvety.
This area enjoys a Mediterranean climate, the influence of which is tempered by the Cévennes foothills
This year, it was the climate and its extremes that gave us an incredible and very surprising vintage. 2017 was a year in which the elegance and balance of the wines and the softness of the tannins contrasted with a growing season of extreme weather phenomena and an exceptionally small harvest in the south.
The grapes are picked at phenolic maturity and harvested by machine. After destemming, the grapes are vinified in concrete tanks for three weeks. Pumping over operations are staggered and performed each day in order to gently extract the aromatic substance, anthocyanins and tannins. The temperature of the alcoholic fermentation is checked and regulated. At the end of the alcoholic fermentation, the temperature is allowed to increase to 30 -33 degrees to help the polymerization of the tannins.
