Château de Fosse-Sèche

Eolithe - 2017 - Guillaume Pire

This wine is the perfect expression of a Jurassic-era siliceous terroir. Huge, very concentrated fruit aromas, with notes of violet and more ripe fruits. The palate… is evocative of fine Pinot Noir – as the French would say, "Ça pinote!”. Some very clean juice. The first wine of the Fosse-Sèche range also happens to be an exceptional cuvée.

A blend of two Cabernets, with Cab Franc in the majority (95%). The vines are between 15 and 55 years old, and are planted on a Jurassic-era plateau made up of siliceous gravel mixed with slightly clayey earth.Free of any limestone, the soil permits for the growth of very deep roots. The estate is certified organic by ECOCERT and biodynamic by BIODYVIN. The yields are very low: 19 hl/ha. Vinification is meticulous, with a short fermentation time (3-5 days), followed by a long maturation in vats.
