The Great Wines of Languedoc - The Wines of Occitania - South of France
Benjamin Clavel created his domain, Domaine des Cimes, in 2016. This year marks the beginning of his cellar adventure in particular, after joining for years at the Cave Cooperative Roquebrun.
With Les Petites Terrasses and Passion des Cimes et Nuances, he signed his first three vintages declared in AOP Saint-Chinian, including two red wines and a rosé wine (Nuances).
Les Petites Terrasses du Domaine des Cimes is a blend of Syrah and Grenache Noir. The plots of the vineyard are located in the municipality of Roquebrun, planted in altitude on shale soils.
The grape harvest is manual, as is the sorting on the return to the cellar. The grapes are picked at dawn to preserve their freshness and delicate aromas. The vinifications are done gently.
With this red wine AOP Saint-Chinian, Domaine des Cimes offers a wine on the fruit, tender, delicate and full of roundness. The suppleness of the wine and the fine, airy volume on the palate are accompanied by beautiful aromas of red fruits and black fruits. A beautiful aromatic persistence emerges in the finish and leaves a velvety impression on the palate.
Suave and fresh, Les Petites Terrasses Domaine des Cimes, is tasted at a serving temperature between 15 and 17 ° C maximum. Its fruit and character accompany your aperitifs with friends, tapas and barbecue, as well as white and red meats.
A cuvée to keep another 2-3 years in the cellar to enjoy its freshness and its aromatic palette
