Les Abelhas 2022
Rhône Valley - Côtes-du-Rhône
Appearance: light gold hue flecked with green.
Nose: its reductive nose initially offers up roasted notes which, after aeration, marry with notes of pear and pineapple. Notes of fennel and hawthorn also come through.
Palate: the wine is broad and generous on entry to the palate. Pineapple aromas with some spicy touches predominate giving way to a complex and long lingering finish.
Sommelier's advice: Recommended food pairing: scallop carpaccio with lime lemon and crushed hazel, stuffed tomatoes of “Nîmes” (chicken replace minced meat). Serving temperature: 10-12°C.
Grape variety/varieties: Roussanne. Production and negoce grapes.
Harvest: The grapes are harvested in the early hours of the morning to preserve their aromas and freshness.
Soil: The plots are located in the commune of Montfrin. This wine comes from a soil composed of deep red clay and siliceous pebbles of various sizes. These pebbles, which absorb the Mediterranean heat, combined with the clay soil, which creates a good water reserve, ensure that the Roussanne varietal reaches full maturity while still preserving its acidity.
Vinification: After pressing in whole bunches, the must is cold settled for around 24 hours. It is then vinified in stainless steel tanks with 20% in demi-muids (600 l barrels) with regular bâtonnage (stirring of the lees). Alcoholic fermentation starts spontaneously due to the indigenous yeasts.
Ageing: In stainless steel tank and demi-muids on the fine lees. 7-10 months.
Alcohol content: 14.5
