Vitae - 2018 - Fred Niger

Domaine de l'Ecu

Prepare yourself for love at first sip! A nose with notes of small red berries and maquis, with a touch of minerality. Palate: this is serious, structured juice, crafted for food pairings. A pure pleasure cuvée, which will only grow in potential after a rest in the cellar.

70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Cabernet Franc from vines cultivated biodynamically (certified by Demeter and Biodyvin) and planted on Gneiss and Orthogneiss subsoils, facing southeast, covering a total surface of 0.8 ha. Harvested by hand, this cuvée was vinified by Claire Niger: the Cabernet Sauvignon is destemmed by hand followed by 8 months of maceration on the skins in amphorae, while the Cabernet Franc has a short maceration the followed by one year of maturation in amphorae. Blended before bottling, without fining, filtration or added sulphites.
