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
The vineyard is located on the slopes of Mont Ventoux at an altitude of between 300
and 400 metres above sea-level. The cool breezes at this elevation temper the warm
climate. The warm days and cool evenings promote a long ripening period and
encouraging the grapes to ripen fully while retaining balancing acidity, resulting in fresh
wines with good aromatics. The 15 to 25 years old vines are planted in sandy soils
facing south-east and yield 35 hectolitres per hectare.
Winemaking
Manually harvested, the best grapes were then meticulously selected for this cuvée.
The grapes were destemmed, crushed, macerated and gently pressed in a pneumatic
press, prior to a cold static settling at 10-12°C for 24 to 36 hours. Fermentation took
place in 400 litre French oak barrels, of which 40% were new, 40% were one year old
and 20% were two year old oak; with regular lees stirring. The wine was then aged for
eight months.
Tasting Note
