Domaine Terlato & Chapoutier is a collaboration between legendary French wine grower, Michel Chapoutier and wine industry icon, Anthony Terlato.
The soil is composed of schists, lauzes (rocks made of limestone and quartz).
Harvest is performed at maturity, usually 2 weeks later than neighbouring plots, avoiding over-maturation.
100% destemmed grapes are fermented in concrete tanks. Maceration lasts from 4 to 6 weeks. A gentle extraction by pumping-over and a long maceration on skins ensure elegant and fine tannins.
100% of the wine is aged for 18 months in French oak barrels.
Colour: intense and deep ruby colour with hints of violet.
Nose: black fruits, violet and liquorice.
Palate: fresh with a velvety middle palate. Spices, slightly acid wild strawberries.
