Brillane 2009

La Brillane is the most characteristic wine of our Domaine. It is light and fruity, typical of the wines of Provence, yet full-bodied enough and rich in tannin to age well for up to seven years.

Description

Appellation : AOC Coteaux d’Aix en Provence

Average age of the vines : 25 years old

Soil: clay-chalk

Grape varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre

Wine-making process : organic production certified by the Ecocert label (French Organic label)

Harvest: Exclusively by hand. The grapes are selected at the foot of the vines, then transported to the winemaking halls in special trays.

Wine processing: Selection of the desired grape variety in the correct proportions is completed in the wine-making hall. Separation of the vine stalks from the grapes; then the grapes slide down into oak vats. Fermentation is realized with natural yeasts from the grapes themselves.

Traditional fermentation methods are effected in the oak vats. Temperatures are kept constant, the juice is collected naturally by gravity, and the free-run wine is separated from the pressed wine. Minimal quantities of SO2 are used.

The mouth is round and structured. Tannins are melted well. In the beginning of mouth, red and black fruits are very present then make way for the vanilla notes and for the symphony of spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger). Finale goes on slightly chocolate notes then an impression of freshness.
