Vintage
2019 marks a return to a more Mediterranean profile than the previous year. There
was less rain than in 2018; the rain fell mainly in autumn and winter, with a marked
absence during the summer which experienced a series of heatwaves. Managing
the water levels was a key issue in the vineyards. Mild temperatures in winter and
spring resulted in early budding, which required protection from frost using special
candles. Timely spring showers guaranteed a good supply of minerals essential for
the growth and development of the leaf canopy. Flowering, véraison and ripening
were all delayed by seven to 10 days compared to 2018. The vines were in excellent
health at harvest and the grapes reached good levels of maturity.


Vineyard
The contrasted region of the Languedoc Roussillon produces fruity wines which
represent the exceptional diversity of terroirs. The grapes for the 6ème Sens Rouge
are grown in the foothills of the Corbières and Minervois. Here, the sunny climate and
proximity to the Mediterranean, offer the ideal landscape for vine growing. The
typical Southern French varieties are grown soils that are predominantly clay
limestone.


Winemaking
The grapes were vinified separately. A proportion of the Syrah underwent carbonic
maceration which preserved the integrity of the aromas and ensured a fruity style.
The remainder of the grapes were destemmed, followed by traditional maceration
and fermentation in stainless steel tanks under carefully controlled temperatures, up
to a maximum of 25°C. Following fermentation, the wines were matured with a
proportion being aged in French oak barrels and the remainder in vats to preserve
the fruity aromas.


Tasting Note
Aromas of ripe red fruit aromas and a touch of spice lead to a smooth palate of
blackcurrant, fresh red fruits and vanilla nuances. The tannins are fine and silky and
contribute to the balance of this eminently quaffable wine.
