Contest for the best wines from Languedoc-Roussillon, Silver Medal 2012
The estate is located in the heart of a teeming garrigue. The soils are calcareous with a dominant variants of sandstone, red clay, marl and shale. Mediterranean climate with maritime influence notorious.
Manual harvest: After a possible transition in cold storage, the crates are poured directly by hand in a stemmer (extraction raids). At the end of it, the harvest goes on a sorting table to eliminate any plant debris.
Mechanical harvesting: Our harvesting machine is equipped with a stemmer and a mechanical sorting table. Thus the harvest arrives at the winery quickly and in perfect condition. This type of harvesting allows us to respond quickly, or await optimum ripeness, with the possibility of working at night to enjoy the freshness and preserve the flavor and saving refrigeration. Once the grapes are in vats, we proceed to add yeast, activating fermentation immediately, except in the case of cold maceration when the grapes are kept at low temperature for several days. The temperature and the evolution of fermentation are checked daily. Crushing is calculated using the desired extraction.
The duration of fermentation varies depending on the vintage and the type of wine desired. After the fermentation and maceration, the wine is poured and the presses are separated. Wines begin their breeding in wooden vats. In winter we proceed to the blending of different vintages. In spring, the more flexible wines are bottled. The best wines (Les Bugadelles) are matured longer in wooden vats or barrels.
Pretty pale yellow color with green tints, fine nose, fragrant and elegant aromas of white peach and fennel. Round and refreshing acidity, very pleasant.
Enjoy with Tarragon Chicken, Grilled Pork Chops with Apricots, Lobster with Ginger Butter and Roasted Asparagus with Feta Cheese.
