Châteauneuf Secret de Léonce

• Appellation: AOP Châteauneuf-du-Pape
• Varietals: Grenache noir, syrah, mourvèdre
• Range: Collection
• Yield:  20hl/ha
• Alcool: 14,5%  

VINEYARD: Wishing to create a wine that is both complex and powerful, we have selected fruits from three of our best Chateauneuf-du-Pape vineyard sites: to the west is ‘Beaurenard’, home to our Domaine Barville, with its clay and limestone soil; and in the south-east ‘Rayas’ and ‘la Crau’, vineyards owned by our collaborating vigneron, which have sandy soils. This wine is styled in the best Chateauneuf tradition and shows the expression of these exceptional terroirs.

VINIFICATION: The soils are sustainable managed and worked throughout the year. Green harvest, de-budding and hand-harvested into small cases to minimise damage to the fruit. Rapid transportation to the winery to prevent oxidation. Maceration and fermentation in concrete tanks for 3 to 4 weeks with one ‘delestage’ per day during fermentation. Maturation in French oak (1/3 new, 1/3 one year old, 1/3 two years old) for 12 to 18 months. Bottled by gravity without filtration.

TASTING NOTES:
Colour – Ruby tinged with purple highlights.
Nose – Supreme finesse, with hints of warm spices, black fruits (cassis, blackberry, cherry) along with roasted notes and red peppercorns.
Palate – Elegant with forest fruits dominating the front palate. Unctuous mouthfeel underlined by vanilla tones and supple tannins. Exceptional length promises great ageing potential.

WINE AND FOOD MATCHING: Serve at 17 °C. Open 4 hours in advance.
Enjoy with the finest truffled foie gras, chicken ragoût with black olives, a platter of strong cheeses or with a chocolate mousse.

Domaine Grosset 2014

VARIETIES :  Grenache, Mourvèdre, Syrah
YIELD : 35 hl/ha
NUMBER OF BOTTLES  / ALCOHOL D° : 32 000 b. – 14.5%vol
HISTORY AND VINEYARD :

Located in the village of Cairanne, Domaine Grosset belonged to Alain Grosset, Laurent Brotte’s father-in-law. The Grosset family has always been very active in the life of the village, especially in the development of its AOC. Domaine Grosset, just below the old town, covers 20ha and has Grenache vines of up to 100 years in age. The vineyard consists of two different types of soil: grey marls with sand, and terraces of sandy clay and stones. The warm, dry Mediterranean climate is perfect for the maturity of the Grenache.

VINIFICATION AND MATURATION :

Sustainable viticulture, de-budding, de-leafing and green harvest to limit the yield and increase the quality. Hand-picking into small cases and fast transportation to the winery to avoid berries’ crushing and oxidation. Desteming, gentle crushing. Fermentation at 28°C, followed by a 3 week maceration. The tannic Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre are aged in French oak barrels (1/3 new, 1/3 one wine, 1/3 two wines), while the softer Grenache is matured in concrete vats and 100 year old oak vats to preserve the fruit. Bottling takes place in March, after more than a year of ageing, and a light filtering.

TASTING NOTES:

Colour – Intense ruby colour with garnet glints.

Nose – Very elegant with complex aromas of red berries, warm spices and dry forest floor.                                                                         

Palate – Mouth warming and unctuous, its palate follows through from the nose with hints of cinnamon and red peppercorns married with ripe wild berries and prunes. The tannins are elegant giving way to a long toasted finish.

FOOD AND WINE MATCHING :

Serve at 17 °C.

Enjoy with pheasant terrine, wild mushroom risotto, chicken ragout with green olives or a selection of cheeses - particularly blue.

VINTAGE : 2015 : An excellent vintage. The wines have very long ageing capacity, or can be enjoyed as of today. Very well balanced, fruity, flavoursome wines, with noticeable fine tannins for the reds, spicy and aniseed finales for the whites. 2014 : Experience and anticipation of winegrowers were key that year. Red wines are fruity, very well balanced, round, with subtle tannins, and have less alcohol than average. The whites show good acidity and will reveal their character over ageing.

Château de Bord Red 2014

VARIETIES : Grenache, Syrah
YIELD : 35 hl/ha
NUMBER OF BOTTLES  / ALCOHOL D° : 65 000 b. – 14.5%vol
HISTORY AND VINEYARD :

Built in Roman times, Château de Bord in the village of Laudun belonged to the Vicars of Uzes during the 11th century and later by the Count of Toulouse. It was abandoned after the French Revolution in 1789 and changed hands several times until it was purchased in 1991 by the Brotte family, who saw incredible potential in its surrounding vines. Situated on a south facing hillside, the vineyard is spread over 22ha of terraces. Its soil is a well drained mixture of clay and limestone and is rich in fossils of oysters and other sea shells left by the retreating sea in the Mesozoic era, some 250 to 65 million years ago.

VINIFICATION AND MATURATION :

Sustainable viticulture, de-budding, de-leafing and green harvest to limit the yield and increase the quality. Hand-picking into small cases and fast transportation to the winery to avoid berries’ crushing and oxidation. Desteming, gentle crushing. Fermentation at 28°C, followed by a 3 week maceration. The tannic Grenache and Syrah are aged in French oak barrels (1/3 new, 1/3 one wine, 1/3 two wines), while the softer Grenache is matured in concrete vats and 100 year old oak vats to preserve the fruit. Bottling takes place in March, after more than a year of ageing and a light filtering.

TASTING NOTES:

Colour – Dark ruby.

Nose – Aromas of dark fruits, violets and cedar, ending on notes of thyme and coffee beans.

Palate – Ample and elegant with apparent yet soft tannins. Flavours of wild berries and black cherries. The finale is remarkably long.

FOOD AND WINE MATCHING :

Serve at 17°C.

Lamb stew with olives, beef with truffle sauce, beef tartare with “cèpes” risotto, chocolate pie

VINTAGE : 2015 : An excellent vintage. The wines have very long ageing capacity, or can be enjoyed as of today.
