Our vineyard located in Beaumes de Venise extends between 250 and 300 m of altitude, in the heart of the Dentelles de Montmirail, a jagged mountain massif, which makes the joy of lovers of wild nature and climbing, on four hectares in Organic Agriculture. The soil on the white lands of the Cretaceous is made of marl and limestone, allowing us to obtain elegant, fine and fruity red wines. Here, all the criteria are gathered for a perfect maturity of our grapes: a maximum of sunshine, a little rain, but especially the mistral to dry the grapes and slow down their maturation.
Which grape varieties make up our Beaumes de Venise 2021?
Our Beaumes de Venise AOC is composed of 70% Grenache. This grape variety gives all its character to the wine. It brings power, fruit and body, characteristic of wines from the AOC Beaumes de Venise.
The Grenache is completed by 30% Syrah, which will give it its softness, its roundness and its silky side.
Our grapes are picked by hand, at optimal maturity, allowing our Beaumes de Venise 2021 to be very full-bodied and greedy, although still young, fruity and balanced. The grape varieties are vinified separately to respect the qualities of each. They are then subjected to a maceration of about three weeks, in order to obtain a complete extraction of the aromas and the fruits, before being raised in tank during 18 months.
Our 2021 contrefort de Montmirail is in line with the previous vintages by its fruity and greedy character.
The 2021 vintage is characterized by the presence of notes of menthol and fresh thyme. We always find these charming scents of Cocoa and dark chocolate characteristic of our soil, in the hollow of the laces of Montmirail.
We perceive in the mouth flavors of fresh leather accompanied by strawberry and black currant confit.
This wine is supple with a nice grain and a great suppleness on the finish.
Our Contrefort 2021 is very delicate.
