Soil and climateThe vines are planted on a plateau corresponding to the 2° terrace of the Tarn river. The Domaine Rotier Terroir is composed of very nice gravelly soils.
Grape varietiesDuras (45%), Syrah (30%), Braucol (20%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (5%).
Climate conditions2017 was quite dry but contrasted. At the end of April the frost haven't wrought too much damage in the vineyard. June, July and August were dry but with some little rain which permeted a good vegetative growth of the vines. Vine harvest of beautiful and very good grapes occured between August 28th and September 28th.
Type of winemakingThe different grapes ferment separately at 28 - 30°C. Maceration lasts from 3 to 5 weeks, with micro-oxygenation of the wine under the cap.
Type of ageingAged for one year in French oak barrels (15% new). Bottled on April 29th and 30th 2019.
Tasting notesIn its youth, this wine is dark purple and fruity on the nose, with notes of cassis and cherry mingling with liquorice, pepper and other spices. Full and rich on the palate with good tannic structure and a delicately fruity finish.
Food recommandationThis wine goes well with tasty poultry, lamb or game (hare, venison, wild boar ..) as well as marinated red meat dishes. Serve at 17/18°C. May be cellared for 10 years and more.
