Tasting Notes

The wine is a blend of 60% Syrah and 40% Grenache Noir. The 25 year old grapes produce an average yield of 20 hl/ha which is fairly low. The hand-picked grapes are destemmed then fermented separately in stainless steel vats for 3 weeks at 25oC and aged separately in oak barrels for 9 months. The Syrah is aged in 228 litres french oak barrels while the Grenache is aged in demi-muids of 400 litres. The wine is bottled without filtration. - Importer Note

The vineyard of Plateau des Chênes is located on 3 communes: Lirac, Roquemaure and Saint-Laurent-des Arbres. This estate was a new acquisition in 2010 by the family Brechet. The family is well known for producing Château de Vaudieu in Châteaufneuf du Pape and Domaine des Bosquets inGigondas. The Bréchet have a long history as winegrowers in the region (see Château de Vaudieu). It is Laurent Bréchet that manages the estate with the advice of well-known oenologist consultant Philippe Cambie. - Importer Note
