Castelmaure, a very special terroir. The village nestles high in the Hautes Corbières, at an altitude that encourages true southern elegance. Geologically the arid soil is based on black schist and limestone which means harvesting has to be by hand.
Hand-picked into small crates then 2/3 hours maceration in the press follow by clarification, flotation and fermentation at 16°C.
Eye: Beautiful crystal pink color.
Nose: Aromas of ripe fruits.
Palate: Open, rich and long in the mouth, beautifully balanced.
Refreshing as an aperitif drink, or with charcuterie, salads grilled meat.
