2014

BOIS DU ROI 2015
Red
AOP Languedoc
Grape Variety: Syrah 40%, Grenache 30%, Mourvèdre 30%,

Alcohol Content: 15 %

Surface: 2 ha

Productivity: 25 hl/ha

Harvest: Manually in picking in crates

Vinification: Unlike its older brother Le Château, Bois du Roi is produced from younger vines. It nonetheless benefits from the same meticulous treatment as the prestigious “tête de cuvée”, with just one difference – the length of maceration, which lasts 20 days on average. The grapes are de-stemmed. Daily punch-down of the cap allows gentle extraction of the aromatic compounds and polyphenols. Each variety is vinified separately in concrete tanks.

Tasting: A bouquet of strawberry and kirsch-cherry aromas that persists in the mouth, associated with thyme and peppermint flavors and a sublime end-note of violet. We find the supple, silky
tannins that characterize the Bois du Roi cuvée.

Serving Temperature: 16 – 18° C

Accompanies: Ideal partner for: rib of beef, duck, mature cheeses and grilled monkfish tails

2010

BOIS DU ROI 2010
Red
AOP Languedoc
Grape Variety: Syrah 40%, Grenache 30%, Mourvèdre 30%,
Mourvèdre : aged 18 months in new French oak barrels

Alcohol Content: 13,5%

Surface: 2 ha

Productivity: 25 hl/ha

Harvest: Manual picking in crates

Vinification: The grapes are de-stemmed and filled into thermo regulated concrete tanks through a gravity feed. On a daily basis, we manually and pneumatically punch down the cap in order to extract the aromas and polyphenols. The wines of the different grape varieties are vinified separately with a long maceration period at 28°C for the Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvèdre respectively. This wine does not contain added sulfites.

Tasting: The nose is characterized by strawberry and kirsch-cherry aromas, which are reflected in the fore- and midpalate together with cinnamon and pepper flavors. The finale is highlighted by notes of violet. This wine is voluminous and is well concentrated with supple and silky tanins characteristic of this vintage.

Serving Temperature: 16 – 18° C

Accompanies: game, red meat, duck, and fine cheeses
