Description : In 1994, we harvested our first SGN titrating more than 200° Oechslés (about 30° potential), a mythical limit for wines of great concentration. We then named this type of wine 'Trie Spéciale'. In viticulture, we speak of a trie, when it describes the process of selecting botrytized berries. These wines do not behave in the same way, because the extreme richness of the musts in sugar and acidity strongly inhibits the development of the yeasts, making them keep important residual sugars and limiting the importance of alcohol. We produced a similar wine in 2002 and again in 2005 in the Clos Windsbuhl. This 2006 Clos Jebsal Trie Spéciale has only just finished fermentation and is still being aged. It will probably not be bottled until September 2009, which is the time needed for such dense wines. The berry selection process is not necessarily stricter, but the grapes are more mature and, more importantly, the botrytis is drier and therefore the concentration effect is more intense.

I love this site. Whether it's for old wines, or recent ones. The choice of partner estates is impressive, and allocations are sold at fair prices. Ludovic's advice is always excellent.
