2012

 Cuvée 2012

Terroir

Clay-limestone, sandstone and shale reveal the diversity offered by the Terrasses du Larzac and particularly in the case of this blend, the commune of St Privat.

Cultivation method

Traditional cultivation, together with a gradual decrease in the use of herbicides and chemicals. The vines are pruned short, disbudded at the centre and the grapes harvested by hand.

Grape Varieties

Grenache, syrah and carignan express themselves to reveal the terroir of the Larzac foothills. This year, a touch of cinsault completes the blend.

Vinification

Work is guided by our wish to respect the fruit and freshness offered to us by the terroir. The grapes are selected in the vineyard, the stalks removed and the grapes tanked for 15 to 20 days, under controlled temperatures.

Maturing

The wine was matured in oak casks for the best part of 10 months. Bottling took place in October, followed by a well-earned rest of 2 months !

Tasting

This late vintage confirms the greatness of the St Privat terroir. The quest for a well-balanced, soft and gentle wine is continued. Red fruits and spices are born along on delicate and velvety tannins, which make you want to come back to it.

Service

Decanting and letting the wine breathe at a temperature of 15°C, will allow you to fully appreciate this wine.
