Domaine des Carabiniers Cotes du Rhone 2020

Perfumed damson fruit, spicy and textured on the palate.
Lovely ripe Rhône style redolent of the garrigue of
Southern France.
Producer Note
The domain covers 40 hectares in the Tavel, Lirac and Cotes du Rhône appellations
and the vineyards have been certified organic since 2000 and biodynamic since 2011.
Owned by the Leperchois family, who are keen devotees to the biodynamic
philosophy, the domain derives its name from its role as a coaching inn and the original
cellars were developed in the old stables. .
Vineyard
Domaine des Carabiniers is certified organic and biodynamic by Ecocert and Demeter.
The vines are grown in Pliocene sand and are surrounded by heat reflecting pebbles.
During the vine's dormant period, composted grape pomace is ploughed in to improve
the soil. Vigorous pruning takes place to select the fruiting canes. Protection of the vines
is paramount and the vines are closely monitored on a daily basis, taking into account
the weather patterns, in order to reduce the risk of mildew. The vines are green
harvested to concentrate the flavours in the remaining berries and the harvest takes
place once the grapes have reached the optimum level of maturity.
Winemaking
The grapes were harvested at night to retain the freshness, protect the aromas, prevent
oxidation and avoid the use of sulphur. The cellars then turned into a sparkling clean,
bustling scene of activity in which the harvest's 'wild' or natural yeasts were left to
develop and spontaneously start the fermentation. The temperature during
fermentation was maintained at 28°C for three weeks with regular pump-overs to
encourage the maximum development of the fruit aromas. Traditional methods were
used throughout to foster the fruit aromas and the outstanding terroir from which the
grapes originate.
Tasting Note
Deep crimson in colour, this harmonious blend shows delicate notes of violets and
liquorice enveloped in nose full of vibrant red fruits. A powerful wine with beautiful
structure and balance, through to a velvety smooth texture on the long finish.
