Sablet Red 2015

A WINE MARKED BY SPICES

Story

The wine
Since 2006, the Quiot family, charmed by the Dentelles de Montmirail and its products of character, has owned the Château du Trignon in order to perpetuate it, while expanding it by 10 ha of Vacqueyras and a few hectares of Beaumes-de-Venise.
“Respectful of our achievements but rich in our winegrowing knowledge, we have adopted this land, whose singularity fits in with all of our other properties, with the same concern for tradition, quality and adaptation.”
Location
Built on a sandy hillock that gave it its name, this typically Provençal village is home to narrow streets and strange stairs with uneven steps. Its vineyard, all on gentle slopes, elongated silhouette, feeds on sandy soils, decalcified red clays and gravel of various sizes. The Dentelles de Montmirail, at the foot of which it is located, protect the 300 hectares of vines covered by this appellation.
Sablet acquired its letters of nobility, Côtes du Rhône Villages communal, in 1974.
Terroir
A particular geology in the Sablet village appellation: sandy soils, decalcified red clays mixed with pebbles of various sizes and red sandstone soils.
On the Domaine, we can distinguish more particularly 2 terroirs on alluvial terraces:
- rolled pebbles,
- sandy and not very calcareous (white safres).
Vinification
Total de-stemming. Vatting time : 20 days. Matured in vats and "foudres".
Varietals
Grenache - 歌海娜
Mourvèdre - 慕合怀特

"Du grenache, du mourvèdre et de la syrah pour cette cuvée qui fleure bon les fruits rouges et noirs. Rond, fondu, soyeux, d'une longueur appréciable, ce vin déjà accessible possède suffisamment de structure pour bien évoluer." [+]
