Refreshingly fruity and floral bouquet with delicate white spice and mineral flavours on the palate
The Château de l'Aumérade is a 400 year old estate located in in the heart of Provence. Originally belonging to the Aumerat family, the traditional Mas property dates back to the Renaissance period. In 1594, the Duke of Sully, Henry VI's finance minister, presented the Château with a Mulberry tree and Plane treees for their luxurious gardens, for supplying the Royal Court. In 1930, a young Henri Fabre senior and his wife Charlotte, fell in love with the Château de l'Aumérade, with its 300 hectares of estate vineyards and purchased it from the Aumerat family. The Château was designated as a Cru Classé when the Provence appellation was created in 1955, a system classifying the wine estate rather than the vineyard area. It is one of 18 that still remain in the designation. The Château is currently run by Henri Fabre junior and his sister Marie-Christine. Vineyard
The soils are predominantly clay limestone, which helps to impart a spicy mineral character to the final wine. The vines receive a cooling ventilation from the salty Mistral winds blowing in from the sea just a few miles away. Winemaking
The harvest took place at the beginning of September and the grapes were immediately destemmed. The Fabre family introduced an innovative way to transport the berries to the press by gravity, via refrigerated tubes thus preserving all the fruit aromatics. The berries were gently pressed, the juice was carefully selected and cooled to 13°C. Following a static settling, a 10 day alcoholic fermentation took place under temperture controlled conditions of between 17 and 22°C, preserving the integrity of the primary aromas. Racking and blending took place at the end of the year with tartaric stabilisation and filtration. Tasting Note
