As a Pays d’Oc IGP grape varietal wine, the Cabernet-Sauvignon produces powerful wines with outstanding longevity.
Its aromas are multiple and complex, dominated by blackcurrant and cedar wood. When ageing, its fragrances are reminiscent of game, leather or undergrowth...
It’s an ideal, smooth and pleasant Pays d’Oc IGP wine, leaving a round and silky sensation in the mouth. Despite containing much mess tannin than present in Cabernet-Sauvignon, it has a natural affinity with oak often producing beautifully aged wines.
When young, it exhales fragrances of black pepper, spices, violet, raspberry or blackcurrant. When ageing, it develops hints of smoke, wood or liquorice. Like the Cabernet-Sauvignon, Syrah has a tannic structure that needs time to reveal its perfection.
It is often said that Mourvèdre is enjoyed with “feet in the water and head in the sun”. It produces surprisingly powerful wines with its tannic structure and highly-colourful robe.
Pinot Noir is considered a mystery as it is difficult to understand and capricious. Depending on the terroir in which it is grown, it will produce very different wines. In Pays d'Oc, it grows on cold ground. It excels either in altitude or in small yields.
Powerful and fruity ! The Malbec grown on the hillsides offers an explosion of complex aromas. The palate offers excellent tannic concentration and attractive aromas of black fruits, blueberry, blackberry and blackcurrant. Notes of sweet spice and liquorice develop after a few years of bottle age.
The Carignan Old Vines produce wines with delicate, smooth and well-balanced tannins. The palate is dominated by red fruits and spice. Notes of prune, toasted bread, roasted almonds and leather develop with bottle age.
This grape variety is the ultimate Pays d’Oc rosé wine par excellence ! It produces fresh wines with a pronounced taste of strawberry and rose petal, becoming slightly brick-red when assembled with Grenache where the rosé takes on its roundness.
In assemblage wines, it brings all its power and roundness. Stemming from old vines, it produces colourful wines that are very aromatic, well-rounded and generous with remarkable finesse.
The soil and surrounding climate influence its aromatic expression. On cold soils, it produces lively white wines with floral hints. Its bouquet brings up hints of apple, fresh butter or hazelnut. On warmer soils, its nose reveals fruity hints (apricot, peach, exotic fruits).
There are many types of Muscats. Only the Muscat Petits Grains and Muscat d’Alexandrie are produced in the Pays d’Oc. It is believed that Muscat was the first-known vine and it is most certainly the oldest grape variety in the world. In Pays d'Oc IGP, it is vinified as Dry White Wine, but keeps its surprising aromatic character.
This variety can be found just as easily in Bordeaux as in New Zealand. It is well adapted to the Pays d’Oc, where it has a dry, delicate, harmoniously fruity and refreshing character.
It produces remarkable wines with a generous and smooth body and intense aromatic complexity. It reveals delicate notes of fruit (peach, pear, apricot) or exotic fruit as well as floral notes with overlaid aromas of spices and honey.
