Cor Hominis Laetificat Gigondas - 2010
Terroir : Gigondas. Scree slopes, sand, clay, limestone and alluvial soil...
Grape varieties : Grenache again but with the addition of the seductive strength of Syrah and some Mourvèdre to lift it up. All grapes coming from selected low-yield unstressed vineyards.
Vinification process : We carry out long macerations to bring the best out of the grapes, always striving towards harmony.
Ageing : After malolactic fermentation, the various grapes are blended.
Ageing takes place in a XII century stone cellar at 700-meter high, close to the town of Roquefort (Aveyron).
New oak is avoided in order to preserve the delicacy of the Grenache variety.
Aspect : dense ruby red
Nose : full of elegance and refinement. Red berries so ripe you could eat them! Notes of undergrowth
Taste : silk and velvet give a wine full of personality, authoritatively taking over your senses. Soft tannins and voluptuous fruit ending in notes of red fruit jam and vanilla.
Service : Serve at 16° with your love
