“Demoiselle” is a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Merlot, grown on schists and clay limestone soils.
It is a turbulent wine which likes to wear the rich, soft robes of the Pays d’Aude appellation and also run after the Mediterranean sunshine. It would like to visit the entire world without losing its breath, complementing all types of food from rich meats to refined spices, not forgetting the terroir of its origins.
The grapes are sorted and de-stemmed before being put into the vat. The grapes are gravity fed to preserve the quality and purity of the fruit. The vinification then proceeds without any chemical, or oenological, intervention. The wines are allowed to follow nature’s course. The fermentation lasts approximately two weeks and a low temperature of 20°C is maintained to ensure a slow extraction, without any punching down or pumping over. Demoiselle is aged in a combination of wooden vats (foudres) and stainless-steel tanks. Bottling takes place at the end of the second quarter. Before bottling Demoiselle undergoes a minimal addition of sulphites to guarantee an optimal stability.
Demoiselle 2019 is certified “Vin Méthode Nature”.
A garnet robe with a violet rim. Demoiselle presents an intensely flavoured wine with an expressive palate of ripe black fruits; cherry, blueberry and plum. The wine is richly flavoured, dense, but thanks to the freshness of the acidity, it is balanced and harmonious and can be immediately appreciated. A long and complex finish promises a wine for laying
down, for those with patience!
