Certified Organic in 1996, but practicing organic since 1984, it is one of the early Corbiere vineyards to capitalize on their terroir. Situated near the idyllic town of Lagrasse, the vineyard is 130 hectares (320 acres) of beautiful land, bounded by hills on three sides, and divided into parcels, each planted with a specific grape. With its natural spring, Pech-Latt’s grape-growing pedigree can be traced back almost 2,000 years. The estate also preserved the old vines of Carignan, which have be systematically removed by other estates so the character of the wine is greatly influenced by up to 40% of these 60+ year old vines depending on the vintage.
This wine from the the Corbieres AOC within the Languedoc, is a fantastic value. Made from a blend of old vine Carignan, Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvèdre, it offers plenty of dark berry fruit and explosive flavors. It is also made from grapes farmed Organically and carries the Ecocert for Organic origin on the label. Manual harvest with a strict sorting at the vineyard. Before the winemaking, the grapes are sorted a second time and destalked. Vatting of 20-25 days in cement vats, with several pumping overs and rack-and return operations during the vatting. Ageing for a minimum of eight months.
Deep dark red. Intense aromas of fruits and flowers, especially violet and blackberry.Unctuous in the mouth, with notes of spices and licorice, this is a powerful and concentrated wine.
