SYRAH 

Ground :

 

The vines are planted in the town of Villematier, about twenty kilometers north of Toulouse on a soil of gravely boulbènes on the surface and stony in depth.

 

Tasting:

 

Dark ruby color. Elegance, complexity, expression of black fruits on the palate. The tannins are silky with a black olive finish. The expression of Syrah du midi combined with a touch of freshness from our southwest.

 

Cultural practices:

 

It is with a perpetual respect for the plant and a reasoned approach to the culture that this grape variety is cultivated. The land is mechanically worked every other row, the grassed row in which organic life plays a large part in soil preservation. In order to limit the risk of pollution, there is no residual weeding or anti-botrytis. The biological diversity of this terroir gives the grapes full expression
terroir.

 

Oenological practices:

 

The grapes are picked at full tannic maturity or even over-ripeness and introduced into 400-liter French oak barrels without crushing in order to preserve the crunchiness, fruit and fleshiness of the grapes. After three to four weeks of maceration, the wine is run off and then reincorporated in the barrel to stay there for 5 months in order to obtain delicate toasted notes combined with the aromas of spices and black Syrah olive.

 

Production:

 

8000 Bottles / year

 

Pairing - wine:

 

From the aperitif, a little cool for lovers of this grape variety and throughout the meal especially with grilled meats.
