DOMAINE DES SCHISTES TRADITION CTES DU ROUSSILLON VILLAGES 2009 DOMAINE DES SCHISTES TRADITION CÔTES DU ROUSSILLON VILLAGES 2009

Jacques and son Mickaël Sire's Domaine des Schistes is made up of assorted parcels lying along the Corbières foothills. This is a powerful, Syrah and Carignan dominated wine with surprising balance and finesse for such a rich and heady blend.





VINEYARD
The domaine is based in the village of Estargel, surrounded by barren rocky landscapes, the beautiful white capped Pyrenees to the south and the Mediterranean due east.

The soils are marl and shale on shallow, south facing slopes, given perfect ripening conditions for the grapes.

All the vines are a minimum of 40 years old.

GRAPE VARIETIES
40% Syrah, 30% Carignan, 20% Lladoner Pelut, 10% Grenache

VINIFICATION
The grapes are manually harvested and then vinified seperately.

All the grapes are destemmed and then the Syrah undergoes traditional maceration for 21 days. The Grenache and Lladoner Pelut are macerated for 15 days and the Carignan for 14 days.

After malolactic fermentation the wines are racked and the aged in cement tanks until bottling.

TASTING NOTE
The typical Southern French varieities dominate in this wine with its intense almost heady aromatics, with notes of prune, dried fruit, black cherry and undergrowth to the fore. The palate is unsurprisingly rich; powerful and peppery this wine will be the perfect match for venison, wild boar or hearty casseroles.
