« CLOS MADON» Rosé - 2019
A.O.P. COTEAUX VAROIS EN PROVENCE
COMPLEXITY and GENEROSITY
« Clay limestone soils » The harvest takes place late, between September 10 and October 10. Nights are cooler in our sector of the Var hinterland and our vineyard is located at an altitude of 300 m. The harvest is carried out mechanically overnight between 3 and 9 am in the morning. Vines are very close to our winery which allows grapes to be brought to pressing very quickly. The skin maceration is rapid: 3 to 6 hours maximum for grenaches and 1 hour for syrah for example. The settling is carried out cold (between 8 and 12 ° C) for 48 to 72 hours. The alcoholic fermentation is started at 14 ° C and then thermoregulated between 16 and 18 ° C for about 10 days. We then proceed to aging on fine lees in stainless steel and concrete tanks for 2 months. All vats are then racked and filtered at the end of December. Blends are conducted studiously in early January and the wine is ready for tasting around February 15.
