Velours Rouge

0 out of 5

£23.00

An esthete wine with magnificent velvet garnet color and purple reflections.
The nose is splendid with aromas of blackcurrant buds, liquorice, black olives and purple roses.
The mouth is soft, rich, ample and fresh. Texture is velvety, and the finish is tasty, long with liquorice, a real treat. Elegant and feminine, a true vin de terroir.

Suggested food pairing:
Roast lamb, beef rib, duck breast with blueberry sauce and roast veal from the Pyrenees.
Ageing potential: 10 years+

Terroir:
Horizontal alluvial terraced soils dating back to the quaternary (alt. 35m). The top 2 meters of soil are composed of round silica pebbles amassed in clay mud, deposited on clay bedrock. The soils are exposed to windy conditions (Aeolian pebbles) and generous amounts of sunlight (more than 260 days per year) and are located about 4 kilometers from the Mediterranean Sea.

Vine work and winemaking:
Weeding done by plough, no chemical fertilizers are used, organic crops and methods. Manual disbudding and leaf-removal.
Cold fermentation, 30 days of maceration at max 25°C. Pigeages. Held in stainless steel tanks until bottling.
