The grapes for this wine come from four terroirs: the buttresses of the Cévennes which lend freshness to the wine, the Aude valley, the region of Limoux which gives fruity aromas and the Hérault plain which brings richness and roundness.
1/3 of the cuvée undergoes a 3-week fermentation period in oak barrels (new and one-year-old). 9-months ageing in barrels, on the lees with regular stirring.
Malolactic fermentation. The remaining is fermented in stainless steel vats at controlled temperatures (18°- 20°C).
Abbotts & Delaunay have taken their Burgundian heritage and are making wines of outstanding quality and value in the Languedoc. They are truly one of the great undiscovered secrets of the French wine industry.
