Villa Noria Amfora Orange Wine Coteaux de Bessilles 2021

An aromatic orange wine with delicate floral notes of
rose, quince and apple. The palate is fresh, fruity and
harmonious finishing with a little grip.
Producer Note
Villa Noria is the story of two wine enthusiasts, Fabien Gross and Cédric Arnaud, who
both grew up in viticultural regions-Languedoc and Alsace-surrounded by vineyards
and winemaking heritage and is the result of overflowing enthusiasm, ethics and
values. The inheritance left to its owners by their winemaking ancestors, was passion
and respect for the land. Located a stone’s throw from the Mediterranean Sea,
between Pézenas and Montagnac, Villa Noria produces elegant organic wines, in
perfect harmony with nature and the terroir. The winemaking is traditional, without
chemical additions and only low doses of sulphur are used. Their natural ranges
‘Amfòra’ and ‘Basic Instinct’ are vinified without the addition of sulphur.
Vintage
2021 was an extremely challenging vintage. After a warm start to the spring, which
brought the vines along, a sudden severe frost hit vineyards during the second week in
April, damaging the buds and significantly reducing yields throughout the region. While
the production was significantly reduced, the juice was of excellent quality.
Vineyard
The grapes for the Amfòra cuvée come from vineyards between the Mediterranean
Sea and the mountainous foothills. The Mediterranean climate, with its warm, dry
summers and relatively mild winters offer the vines excellent conditions in which to
flourish. The high number of sunshine hours results in wines that are powerful, rich and
aromatic, but also fresh due to the tempering effects of the Mediterranean Sea. The
soils are made up mostly of clay-limestone and basaltic soil; the latter is a volcanic soil
formed from ancient lava, which contains high proportions of iron and imparts a
distinctive minerality to the wine. The vineyard is certified organic, and uses sustainable
practices. The vines are surrounded by hedges, to protect them from pesticide
treatments in the neighbouring fields and also to provide a refuge for the wildlife,
enhancing biodiversity and creating a balance. Harvested in the cool of the night to
retain freshness and at high ripeness levels to avoid any green flavours or bitterness.
Winemaking
This orange wine was produced without the addition of sulphites or yeasts. The grapes
were macerated with the skins and seeds for three months; the pigment and tannins
were released into the wine and imparted the coppery hue. The grapes were gently
pressed to release the juice which fermented with natural yeast. Matured in terracotta
amphora, whose natural porosity provides oxygenation thereby reducing the acidity
and refining the tannins. The wine was aged in the amphora on its lees until bottling,
which took place without fining and just a gentle filtration.
