Specialists in wines from southern France's Languedoc-Roussillon region and passionate about the diversity of its grape varieties, we have developed the "Les Jamelles Cépage Rare" collection. Its aim? To allow wine lovers to discover a selection of grape varieties, whether old, forgotten or quite simply unexpected in the south of France. A veritable quest was required to hunt out the few plots where the vines flourish and whose yields are in line with our approach to quality. We also had to determine the vinification style best adapted to each grape variety in minute detail.
The grapes are picked at their peak of ripeness, when their skins are a greyish pink colour. They are pressed quickly and the free-run and press juices are separated before being settled thoroughly. Slowly fermented at 14°C to 16°C for 5 weeks. Aged on fine lees in stainless steel for 4 months.
Gorgeous, intense colour with subtle golden highlights. A very expressive, exuberant, rich, powerful and intense nose. Full bodied and intense on the palate, with an explosion of exotic fruit flavours: lychee, passion fruit, pineapple and mango, followed by rather intense floral notes (rose) and hints of spices (ginger and white pepper). The exotic fruit notes are underpinned by lovely vivacity and freshness.
Gewurztraminer is the symbolic varietal of Alsatian wines where it goes into the making of Grand Crus. This pink-hued grape that forms small bunches is also found in Germany and Austria. For a few years now, its cultivation has been authorized in the Languedoc region. Though its production is still very limited in the south of France, this highly distinctive varietal has found a new terroir in which it can express all of its aromatic potential.
