Red 2015 - Vintage Fleur de l'Amaurigue
Harvested when slightly over-mature for an interesting concentration of the grape varieties. Traditional vinification with 3 days of pre-fermentation maceration at low temperature to extract red fruits aromas from the grapes. Stored for 4 weeks in heat-regulated cement tanks to better control the fruit extraction, the colour and the tannins. Post-fermantation maceration for 10 days.
Aged in French oak barrels for 14 months after malolactic fermentation.
This Provencal red wine comes from a combination of two grape varieties: Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Following a full year's aging in French oak barrels and resulting in a wine of great finesse with a pleasant mouth structure. The Syrah has a nose of spicy aromas that are typical for this grape variety in Provence: white pepper and herb notes as well as licorice ones. In the mouth is harmonious and firm with notes of blackcurrant. Tannins are well defined and smooth. A pleasant fullness and volume in the mouth resulting from maturing that allows it to refine and round out hints of cacoa and the tannic structure of this exceptional wine.
