The grapes were carefully selected, 100% destemmed and then macerated for three weeks to extract aromas, colour and tannins. Fermentation took place with selected yeasts in temperature controlled vats, with regular pump-overs to enhance the aromatic expression. Once fermentation was complete, the wine was matured in concrete vats for six months which allowed the purity of fruit to shine through.

Winery

The Carignan Noir grapes are organically grown in the Minervois, where the warm Mediterranean climate is influenced the cooling effect of the sea, resulting in concentrated fruit with balancing freshness. The vineyard faces south and west, optimising exposure to the sun. The 60-year old vines are pruned in the traditional Mediterranean Gobelet method, which allows the shade from the leaves to protect the grapes from the sun. As a result of the vine age, the poor soils and the concentration that is sought by Olivier Coste, the vines are low yielding, producing just 30 hectolitres per hectare. The 15-hectare vineyard is farmed in the traditional method, using mechanical tools rather than chemical herbicides to control weeds; pheromones are used rather than pesticides to reduce pests in the vineyard and grape pomace is employed as fertiliser to nourish the soils. In order to preserve the biodiversity of the vineyards, trees are continuously planted, over 2,000, in order to preserve and maintain the wildlife. The grapes are hand- harvested in the cool of the night, in order to retain freshness and quality.
