Château Daurion // LE HAUT DU CAUSSE // 2013
70% Syrah, 30% Grenache Noir
The volcanic basalt soil draws a mark on our land and gives the wine richness and complexity. The vineyard, characterized by low yields, is spread on southeast facing terraces to the Mediterranean Sea.
Daurion estate is situated close by the Mediterranean sea which brings a unique freshness.
WINEMAKING & AGEING:
Harvest realised at full maturity. The destemmed grapes macerate in tank for a long time. During the fermentation phase, the pigeage process is done manually everyday. This wine is aged in French oak barrels for more than 10 months before bottling.
This wine is stunning deep garnet in colour with dark purple highlights, which reveals the scent of little black fruits and ripe cherries, contrasting with a mentholated note. A smooth palate with silky tannins unveils aromas of liquorice, morello cherries, blackberries and multiple spices. Tasting this fine wine is an invitation to travel and to share.
PAIRING WINE & FOOD:
The elegance of Haut des Causses is appreciated on Mediterranean dishes, generous and sunny, with a tomato, eggplant, or pepper base, cooked with singing accents of the garrigue (thyme, rosemary).
5 years at constant temperature between 10 to 12°C.
