The History


 Create by Baptiste Cuvelier, Leoville-poyferret family. Wine from pays de l'Herault - FRANCE


The Blend


 Syrah: 45%; Carignan: 40%; Grenache: 15%


WineMaking


Grapes are de-stemmed before a 4 to 6 days cold maceration. Then we undergo a traditional 3 weeks Bordeaux typed fermentation for our syrah and a tank of both carignan and grenache. They were macerated together to soften the carignan?s tannins. Most of the extraction happened at the beginning of the alcoholic fermentation and temperature of the tanks never exceeded 25°C to better preserve varietals fruits aromas. Another tank of carignan was fermented in a carbonic maceration. Handpicked in 10 to 12kg crates, sorted in the field then transported in refrigerated truck


Aging & Analysis


Syrah in a 4 year old French oak vat, carignan-grenache and carbonic carignan in stainless steel tanks. The blend was made mid-May and the wine bottled in late August 2009. This wine is unfined and unfiltered. Alcohol: 13.67% by vol. Volatile acidity: 0.4g/L H2SO4. Free sulfites: 20mg/L. Total sulfites: 35mg/L
