Le Clos des Fées 2014
Cotes du Roussillon Village
Plots of selected old vines on clayey-limestone hillsides. Equal blend of Syrah, Mourvèdre, Grenache and Carignan. Intensive green work: de-budding, inter-core shoots, load regulation, leaf thinning. Search for perfect phenolic maturity, adapted to each grape variety and each terroir. Sorting at harvest and then after destemming. Storage and transport in refrigerated lorries. Vinification partly in new 5 hl demi-muids, hot run-off, malolactic and ageing in 100% new barrels. All the operations of pumping over, racking and putting into barrels are carried out manually, without pumping over. Matured on lees for 18 months. Unfiltered. Powerful, concentrated wine, rich in taste, with an exceptional creamy texture, which nevertheless remains fresh and taut. Delicious the year after bottling, if you like young and powerful wines and if you take care to decant it. Often closes in year II. Then slowly matures and gradually acquires its mature character while retaining its fruit. Cellaring potential 8 to 15 years.
