Vin de Pays de L'Hérault Les Servières.

 

GRAPE VARIETIES :

100 % Cinsault (from over 100 year old vines).

 

LAND :

Named after the wild civet cat or lynx now extinct in the area, LES SERVIERES is made from Cinsault (oeuillade) grapes. The vines, planted over a century ago in 1900, face south-east and grow on hillside terraces where their roots plunge deep into the hard marl and clay/limestone soil. Its depth and pronounced fruit are the result of a joint effort between the owner, my childhood friend, Alain Robert, who loves everything that has to do with nature, and me, a vigneron, completely won over by the extraordinary character of the vineyard situated only 10 kms from Montpeyroux.

 

VINIFICATION :

Maceration for 20 days with lees circulation.

 

MATURING - BOTTLING :

9 months in small casks.

 

TASTING :

The nose is dominated by sharp red fruit such as redcurrants or small black cherries. In the mouth, its soft tannins lead to a fresh, clean exceedingly attractive finish.

 

GASTRONOMIC SOULMATES :

This wine is particularly good with quails prepared with cherries, pot au feu, chicken with tarragon - or even as an aperitif.
