It’s a wink to Nathalies Delbez’s first three « conceived » wines but also to her three children who, in their own ways, encourage her and feel concerned by this beautiful adventure.
Small red wine production AOP Coteaux du Languedoc « Terroir de la Méjanelle » South of France
First mineral & spicy nose (leather, fresh grasses, ripe garden’s tomato) which slowly evolve to strawberry and cassis.It’s freshness is supported by the rasperry liveliness who brightens the aromatic bouquet of this intense meridional pleasure wine.
Every component of the element panel ends up here, the attack is soft and silky. Overall crispy with a nice freshness, however, better not be drunk too cold !
Harvest & Winemaking
Harvested by hand at dawn, when temperatures are at their lowest, the grapes are delicately layed down in crates and then carried to the winery in order to be put in vast, the tannins extraction is slow and delicate. Nathalie Delbez prefers pigeages and relieving rather than other, less eco-friendly and respectuous methods, always sheltered from air and with total control over temperatures to avoid impurities. The alcoholic fermentation is made in a stainless steel tank, the marcs are then immersed a few days to weeks in order to extract it’s quintessence, roundness and thineness are then supported by all the power Nature could give.
