Château de Vaucouleurs
A record rainfall of 1600mm over the year! The spring very rainy was real favorable to the attacks of mildew on grapes and leaves. Thanks to our vigilance we were able to protect the vines. Summer was mild and the pressure exerted by the disease decreased. A very beautiful crop was predicted but sadly, on 14th August, a very violent hail storm destroyed more than 30% of our harvest.
The 43ha domain is located on the edge of the Argens valley, at the foot of the Estérel massif, just 7km from the Mediterranean Sea.
The soils are of Permian origin (270 million years).
They are composed of stony river alluviums, fine sandstones and red micaceous clays.
This wine is blended exclusively from organic grapes.
Syrah 50%, Cabernet-Sauvignon 20%, Carignan 15%, Cinsault 10% Grenache 5%.
The harvest is launched when the phenolic maturities are at their optimum. The grape varieties are harvested separately plot by plot in order to harvest grapes at perfect maturity.
This wine is vinified in accordance with the organic wine charter.
After total destemming of the harvest, cold maceration is carried out in stainless steel tanks for 2 to 3 days in order to extract the best of the aromas. Fermentation starts with the addition of selected exogenous yeasts. They last one week at controlled temperature (over 20 ° C). Then, we carry out regular pumping over for an additional 3 weeks, finished extracting the aromas sought for this cuvée. The wines are then racked (drop wine) and marc is pressed (press wine). The "presses" are partially reintegrated with the drops in order to obtain the desired balance.
It’s a delicious and powerful red at the same time. The notes of red and black fruits dominate.
It will pair your grilled meats and your local cuisine.
