A floral nose with an amylic note. This wine has a frank attack, well balanced acidity, full body and is enhanced by white-fleshed fruit notes.
The Grenaches are located on clay-limestone slopes, while the Cinsaults and the Syrahs grow in predominantly sandy soils.
M. CHAPOUTIER had to “keep calm and carry on” throughout this season of drought and heat to constantly adapt the winegrowing work right up to the last minute; responding fast to curb the vegetation when the welcome rains arrived and remaining patient to allow the grapes to reach full maturity. All this made 2022 an astonishing vintage that, as it turned out, was more luminous than sunny.
The grapes are harvested when fully ripe, and at night to ensure they retain their fruitiness and freshness. The pink/Rose juices are obtained by a direct pressing, followed by a cold static settling. The alcoholic fermentation is carried out at low temperature (16°C) and lasts between 2 and 3 weeks. The wine is constantly protected from oxygen to preserve its full aromatic potential.
