Les terrasses - 2018 - Aurélien Houillon
A nose with notes of black fruit, spices, and mint... Palate: this is unctuous juice, fruity, with rich body and a long finish. This is only the second shot at winemaking from the natural-born sniper Aurélien, and already his cuvées and terroirs have grown in shape and precision.

Aurélien’s 2ndvintage! Cuvée 100% Grenache Noir. The vines are between 25 and 35 years old, grown on slightly sandy clay-limestone soils. From the vineyard site known as Roche Coucourde, these are terraced vines which surround the estate. In conversion to organic and biodynamic viticulture. Yields are around 17 hl/ha, and grapes are hand harvested. Vinification: 100% de-stemmed, 14 weeks of maceration… Maturation: 100% in stainless steel vats for 14 months. Bottled in April 2019. No additives and above all no sulphur!

The savoir-faire instilled in him would then be put in to practice elsewhere and upon...All wines
