2021 is characterized by its precocity. The fall 2019 precipitation was significant and allowed the soil to be regenerated with water. Winter and spring were the warmest in the past 120 years. As of June 30, the bunches were closed on the majority of the plots. The very dry month of July followed by a month of August with very little watering made it possible to obtain grapes of good maturity, with overall wines less alcoholic than 2019.
55% Grenache noir, 35% Shiraz and 10% Mourvèdre.
The black Grenache has been planted at the place called « le Jas », on lacustrine marls and banks of fluvial gravel from the Miocène. Shiraz and Mourvedre are harvested on the quaternary pebbly terrasses of Plan de Dieu and Crapon.
The Grenache grapes were harvested on September the 12th, the Shiraz, more precaucious on the 5th while the Mourvedre, always late has been placed in vats on the 29th of September.
The grapes were first sorted plot by the meticulous harvesters and a second time in the winery with the use of a destemmer.They were then crushen and conveyed into a concrete rectangular vat. The temperature was kept around 26°C troughout the alcoholic fermentation. The maceration duration was of about 30 days during wich time some pumping-over and « delestages » with micro-oxygenation were performed daily.
For 18 months, shiraz, mourvèdre and one part of grenache were rounded in « demi-muids » and 20% of grenache in stainless steel vat.
After 18 months of rounding, the wine was bottled on June 2021.
