Wine Maker Notes
Syrah, Grenache, Carignan, Mourvèdre and Clairette co-fermented. Full clustersSix weeks macerationClay sloape (ancient alluvions), limestony marl, rolling stones.Aged in wooden vats and concrete vats.The Cotes du Rhone from the estate, Les deux Albions, only comes from vines which are classified «Cotes du Rhone Villages». Year after year, the quality of deux Albions is never too far from the Classique Gigondas. These two wines are vinified on the same way: full clusters, indigeneous yeasts, co-fermentation, long maceration. It gives them charm and complexity. Our recent tastings of old vintages of Deux Albions (especially 1999, 2000 and 2004) confirmed its great ageing potential. The 1999 tastes like a Cornas!.. Essentially aged in concrete vats, deux Albions expresses purely its fruit and its terroir. It can be drunk young or old, as it suits you..Bottled without filtration.Forest, gingerbread, bacon, garrigue, lavanda.
