L’Extrême rouge

lextreme-rouge-2012

From a 2 hectare parcel on steep north-facing schistose marls at Mas de las Fredas, Vallée de l’Agly. 75% Lladoner Pelut, 25% Syrah. Destemmed with no crush, with 20% as whole bunch. Fermentation with indigenous yeast in 50% new 400L French oak and stainless steel. 21-44 days on skin. Basket pressed before elevage in 400L barrels and stainless steel on fine lees for 20 months. Bottled without fining or filtration. Low yielding vines in this harsh environment create a defined terroir wine that offers concentration and yet is feminine in nature.
