Domaine du Clos des Fees - Les Sorcieres - rouge - 2017 - 750 ml
Syrah 50 %, Grenache 30 %, Carignan 20 %. The Grenache and Carignan are selected from old vines of between 40 and 80 years old and young vines of Syrah. Mainly limestone-clay soils. The date for the harvest is picked to obtain the best possible fruit while maintaining balanced acidity. The grapes are picked manually.
Pre-fermentary cold maceration is done in 128 hectolitres stainless steel tanks with daily pumping-over. Maceration, Temperature-controlled, lasts between 15 and 21 days, obtaining soft extraction. Full malolactic fermentation. Aged for 8 months in tanks on fine lees and minimal quantities of SO2 added during ageing and at bottling. The concentration of this medium-body wine has been voluntarily controlled for maximum drinkability: explosive fruit flavors, delicate tannins and a silky texture... Delicious right from the time it has been bottled; will improve over the next two to three years.
