Molasse seabed of the Miocene period covered by diluvial alpine deposits (pebbles). Partly vinified like in Beaucastel and partly vinified in the traditional way after destemming. 100% Foudres for a year. Bottled after fining and light filtration.
The Family’s other Châteauneuf! Les Sinards comes from the young vines at Beaucastel and from a neighbouring vineyard that we farm. Wine made from the young vines at Beaucastel, a vineyard that we farm just to the west of Beaucastel.
This year Syrah and Mourvedre presented beautifully. Harvested at perfect maturity, the Grenache brings power and body to this vintage. Rich, deep colours, the nose has complex notes of black fruit and cocoa, tobacco and mild spices. The mouth is full-bodied and long, the tannins are rich and soft with a beautiful persistent finish.
This 2014 offers wines with lots of fruit and balance. The tannins are soft and silky, with lots of volume.
