Collioure 村落位於接近西班牙邊境,是在Pyrenees的山腳。那裡無論氣候和葡萄酒,也因為鄰近地中海而受影響,葡萄樹卻種於向地中海的斜坡,所以葡萄酒受惠於全年吹著的海風,使葡萄酒新鮮,亦富活力。

產地:
法國

風土:
這片土地位於一定高度,所以最適合乾葡萄酒,可讓葡萄受惠於日和夜的溫度條件。這片以頁岩為主的土壤提供了新鮮和優雅感覺,同時該處極之普照的陽光,也為生於這風土上的葡萄酒提供力量。種於這個地方的樹藤密度較高,(6,000/公頃),讓樹根可以生長到深處,尋找十分有限的水源。

葡萄品種:
Syrah, Mourvèdre

釀造:
人手收成,每種葡萄和每片地方都是分開收成和釀造的,以保存最高質素的酚醛成熟度,也讓它徹底發揮該處風土多元化。於陳年時期完結後,葡萄酒會經過品評來決定最好的調合,成就頂級產品。葡萄酒於大缸內發酵,先是低溫浸漬,然後是高溫發酵。這些不同階段能輕柔地抽取香氣、顏色和柔滑的單寧。蘋果酸-乳酸二次發酵於木桶內進行,來取得如絲絨的單寧,和達到木桶和葡萄酒之間更佳溝通。

陳年:
於木桶陳年18個月(100%新木桶)

2,500瓶

品酒筆記:
典型、深黑色,發展出複雜的烤焗香氣,和黑車厘子、雲呢拿及香料味道。

 

The village of Collioure is located close to the Spanish border in the foothills of the Pyrenees. The climate and wines are much influenced by its proximity to the Mediterranean. With vines planted on the rolling slopes falling down into the Mediterranean Sea, the wine benefits from cooling year-round breezes producing a fresh and vibrant wine.

Terroir
The parcels, generally situated at an altitude, are ideal for dry wines, allowing them to benefit day and night from generous thermal conditions. The schist-laden soil offers freshness and elegance, whereas the very sunny climate offers strength to the wines of this terroir. The rootstock’s high density per hectare (6 000 rootstock/ha) allows the vines develop deep roots capturing the limited underground water supply.

Country of Origin:
France

Grape Varieties:
Syrah, Mourvèdre

Winemaking:
Handpicked harvest. Each grape variety and each parcel is harvested and vinified separately in view of obtaining the best phenolic ripeness and of achieving the full expression of the terroir’s diversity. After the maturing period, the wines are tasted to determine the best blend, resulting in a premium product. The wines are fermented in vats with a cold maceration beforehand and a hot fermentation afterwards. These various stages delicately extract aromas, colours and silkier tannins. The malo-lactic fermentations take place in barrels to obtain velvety tannins and to achieve a better exchange between the oak and the wine.

Maturing:
Maturing for 18 months in vats (100% new oak)

Production:
2500 bottles

Tasting notes
A typical, a dark black colour, developing complex roasted aromas, as well as black berry, vanilla and spicy notes.
