Red Wines Estanilles

The color of this Clos du fou 2017 red organic wine from Château des Estanilles is intense ruby, the nose offers aromas of violets and black fruits. On the palate this wine is complex and balanced, the tannins are present but also supple and notes of cocoa, liquorice and roasted coffee invite themselves on the finish, the influence of the schist terroir which continues to roast the vines at night. After very careful manual harvesting, this wine is aged in the wood for 12 months. Only 2,500 bottles of this great red Faugeres are produced by vintage. It is a rare wine, dear to connoisseurs, with an excellent price / pleasure ratio. The appellation faugeres wine: One of the known peculiarities of the terroir is its high density of sandstone shale and its remoteness from urban areas. These gray, blue, yellow or ocher shales were formed from clay from marine deposits. Estanilles Castle is anchored on some of the oldest soils in the world, which underwent extreme compression in the primary era during the geologic era of the Ordovician era, some 500 million years ago. Their aridity forces the vine to draw water reserves deep underground, thus making it insensitive to water stress in dry seasons. The preserved environment, open to both north and coastal winds, helps to reduce the heat during the ripening of the grape berries. It is a determining factor for the preservation of the aromatic and gustatory freshness of wines. The composition of the soil is also an advantage. The strong presence of schist strengthens the feeling of freshness during tasting and gives the wines great aging potential. As nature is well done, this freshness comes at just the right time to counterbalance a sought-after peculiarity of predominantly schist soils, the soft nocturnal restitution of the heat stored during the day.
