Domaine Champ-Long Cuvee Speciale Ventoux 2017

Dense and robust, this mouthfilling wine from the
Southern Rhône has savoury and gamey flavours, warm
and satisfying.
Producer Note
Nestled in the foothills of the Mont Ventoux, on the Princes of Orange route, is the
Domaine de Champ-Long. The sheltered and exceptionally sunny estate covers 30
hectares, straddling the Ventoux and Côtes du Rhône appellations. An exceptional
diversity of terroirs contributes to the complexity of these fine wines, which are vinified
using methods that fuse traditional skills with modern technology. Owners Béatrice,
Christian and Jean-Christophe Gely, cultivate their passion for wine in this beautiful
countryside, on the estate which has belonged to the family since 1820.
Vineyard
Ventoux wines benefit from an unspoilt natural environment of exceptional biodiversity
and the vineyard at Domaine Champ-Long is no exception. The vines age from 25 to 45
years and are low yielding producing 35 hectolitres per hectare. The soils are made up
of pebbly limestone and clay. The vineyard faces south west and is cultivated
according to traditional methods, with the utmost respect for the environment. Organic
fertilisers are applied and the grapes are manually harvested at optimum maturity
levels.
Winemaking
The grapes were destemmed and gently crushed. Fermentation took place at
controlled temperatures of 24°C in concrete vats with racking and daily pump overs to
ensure the optimal levels of colour and flavour extraction, while also imparting structure
to the wine. One third of the wine was aged in four year old 400 litre French oak barrels
for 18 months; the remainder was aged in concrete vats to retain the purity of fruit and
the nuances of the terroir.
Tasting Note
Deep luscious aromas of blackcurrants and dark cherry are accompanied by delicate
spicy notes on the nose. Round and beautifully structured with supple tannins and a
long, satisfying finish.
