Alain Jaume, Marc de Chateauneuf-du-pape
The distillation is done in a still with double wall where the solid matters are agitated permanently to avoid caramels. In addition, this distillation is made under vacuum in order to save the fruity expression of the alcohol.
The distillate obtained is stored in oak casks and aged in the cellar for about 6 years.
The alcoholic strength is gradually brought down by adding quantities of distilled water, until a strength of about 40% alc./vol.
EYE: The colour is a brilliant pale oak.
NOSE: Rich expression of burned, spiced, sap and mint notes. Aromas of raisins and hazelnuts can be detected
MOUTH: On the palate, the strength, the spices and the richness of red Châteauneuf-du-Pape wines appear. The roundness is the dominant sensation. Then, there is an explosion of toasted flavours. The finish is long and harmonious.
