Appelation

I.G.P Cité de Carcassonne

Selection

The vineyards are situated between 120 and 150m (390-490 ft) above sea level. They are planted on gentle southeasterly slopes where they benefit from plenty of sun exposure.

Winemaking

The grapes are picked at night to preserve the grapes’ quality potential. After de-stemming, we collect the first press juice to obtain the best acid/fat balance.  After a light settling, the wine ferments at 17/18 °C for around twenty days and will be aged on the fine lees from its fermentation for two months.

Maturation

100% stainless steel vat with bâtonnage (stirring of the lees).

Soil

Infertile clay, limestone and a crumbly sandstone known locally as “grès de Carcassonne”.

CAUSSE2

“Reconstitution of the soil”

Tasting notes

A spicy rosé with hints of fresh, juicy dark berries, a freshness that brings length, and a rich, smooth finish. This is a sappy wine with lovely fat.
