A complex bouquet that develops with a little time in the glass from fresh wild berry notes to floral and savoury-herbal nuances with violets and dried thyme. Extremely elegant on the palate, intense yet light-footed and vibrant, with fine-grained, perfect tannins and a long mineral, ethereal and savoury finish.-Falstaff

2021-Snow! Rains! What a year! After an autumn and winter in 2020 characterized by drought, the storm Filomena ushered the new year with 2 feet of snow in January. This made not only for beautiful pictures of white landscapes but also scenes of frantic winery teams shoveling snow off the roads and trails. As expected, the tales of tractors heroically braving the snow and ice are still told every night at the café. And the year of plenty continued: relatively cool temperatures during the spring and summer produced beautiful, happy grapes. Then, rains at the end of August and September made for a very relaxed harvest. Not having to worry about the grapes over-maturing, we took our time and finished harvesting by October 7th.

Showing a rather different profile, the wines are precise and focused, with some vats finishing at almost one-degree alcohol lower than usual. The wines show a tapestry of cracking red fruits and citrus with a delicate but layered texture, perfect balance, and a very long finish.

2021 CLOS ERASMUS
Blend: 70% Garnatxa, 30% Syrah
The grapes come from the same parcels year after year, Escales, Aubagues, and Socarrats, which are fermented and aged separately. Destemmed, sorted by hand, and slightly crushed, the grapes ferment in 10-15 HL wooden vats. The macerations lasted 35-38 days. The malolactic fermentation took place in barrel. The wines were aged in 228L barrels (40% new).
