Abbaye Sainte-Marie de Pierredon
Freshness and minerality. 2014 is the second vintage for this "cuvée" 100% merlot, surprising by its freshness and its delicacy. A wine with a great evolution and complexity.
Wine from regions of Alpilles produced with grape of organic agriculture
100 % Merlot.
In cases of 20 kg- Selected at the vineyard
Premature harvest, by night to respect the typicity of the grape. Soft pressing, natural yeast fermentation during 10 days with daily remontage. Ageing during 12 month, 2/3 in barrique and 1/3 in stainless steel.
The color is ruby, the nose black fruits, "garrigue" (Thyme, Rosemary). The mouth is fresh and round with a silky structure. Persistant aromas of cocoa, a nice long lasting roundness and a promising reserve wine.
To combine with game, farmhouse pâté, delicatessen.
From current date to the 10 years to come.
