Le Dit de l'Hortus "La Soulane" Rouge 2016

FRR00749A

這款葡萄酒來自Hortus莊園最美麗的風土的單一田園:
La Soulane

它位於Hortus山的斜坡中間的南部。土地排水能力高,深度充足。儘管葡萄暴露在山谷最暖的地方之一,但由於其高品質的粘質土壤,足以防止葡萄樹在夏季乾涸
田園的擁有地中海般的微氣候。附近和園內的動植物(如標籤上的花彩蝴蝶和茴香花)就是最佳證明。
聚熟成的力量和平衡,在單寧、酸度和香氣之間取得和諧。
考慮到葡萄的完美熟成,所獲得的單寧純度和優雅決定不在橡木桶中陳釀,因這款酒的理念是用最少的干預來表達« la Soulane »的風土。

品酒筆記:
沒有經過橡木桶的純粹表達Mourvèdre葡萄。
這款酒半透著明亮的暗紅色,具有柔和的芳香氣息。細微的呼喚著柔軟的皮革和森林植物,而不是純粹的水果味,但相比之下,在果味和口感上確實是非常清純。
優雅的單寧和溫和的酸味帶出圓滿的梅子、黑莓和巧克力味道。
此酒沒有Mourvèdre典型的“動物”特色野味,反而是光滑、濃縮、純淨和複雜。
可以感受到晴天,也可以感受到純粹的Mourvèdre,但隱約仍然是Hortus特色的優雅。

 

This cuvée comes from a single plot: La Soulane, one of the most beautiful terroirs of the estate.
It is south oriented in the middle of the slope, under the cliff of Hortus Mountain. The calcareous soil is both draining and deep. The vine, despite being exposed on one of the hottest spot of the valley doesn’t suffer from the summer drought, thanks to the high quality of its clay sub-soils. The micro-climate of the plot is typically Mediterranean. The fauna and Flora (La Proserpine – butterfly, La Nigelle - flower, both displayed on the label) surrounding and within the parcel testify of it. This gives way to a nice maturity gathering power and balance between fine tannins, acidity and aromas.
Considering the perfect maturity of the grapes and therefore of the tannins, the purity and elegance obtained doesn’t require an ageing in oak barrels.
The philosophy of this wine is to get an expression of the terroir « la Soulane » with a minimum of resources.

Tasting Notes:
No oak for a pure expression, atypical for Mourvèdre grape.
This wine is a translucent black-red colour, with a subdued aromatic profile. The allusions evoke soft leather and forest plants rather than primary fruits, but on the palate, by contrast, this is indeed a pure-fruited wine.
Plum, blackberry and chocolate are met by graceful tannins and gentle acids. It shows none of Mourvèdre’s typical ‘animal’ notes, and is smooth, concentrated, pure and complex.
It may be sunny, it may be pure Mourvèdre, but that stealthy elegance is still very much Hortus.
