Calmel & Joseph Les Terriors Corbières
£11.99

This wine offers a beautiful gleaming purple-red hue. The nose, in a register of red fruit, is refined and elegant with touches of spice. Its remarkable balance in the mouth, in spite of the extremely hot vintage, is at first surprising. Fine notes of menthol and aniseed accompany an agreeable texture, soft tannins, and spices such as white pepper, rosemary and juniper. A clean, forthright wine in which the smoothness of our Grenache is apparent. Enjoyable now, it will continue to mellow and evolve over time.

Description

Details

Founded in 1995, Calmel & Joseph is a maison de négoce specializing in Languedoc-Roussillon wines from private wineries from across the region. Over the years, they have built close personal relationships with a large number of growers from all appellations. Convinced of the extraordinary potential of this region, oenologist, Laurent Calmel, and Jerome Joseph work together on the vinification, blending and ageing of wines with the common purpose of demonstrating the little known yet unique quality of these Mediterranean terroirs. As well as their desire to produce high quality wines consistent with their terroirs, they are committed to making wines which reflect their convictions and experience.

Vinification
As the whole harvest was matured together and of similar quality, all the grapes were assembled in two vats (due to the harvest time). Vinified at 25 ° C, slight pump-ups were carried out each day of the first week. Then, light moorings of the hat were carried out throughout the vatting for a duration of three weeks. Once extracted, the wine carried out its malolactic fermentation without difficulty. Aging is done in concrete tanks for 6 months
