Domaine de Trévallon rouge 2016

Trévallon is known for its long aging process, more than 2 years for its reds. Racking is kept to a strict minimum, the lees found at the bottom of the barrels continue to nourish the wine during the ageing process

The wine :
Trevallon's 40th vintage

The vintage :
Unfortunately the wild boar came and they have never caused so much damage : 30% of the harvest. Liking the syrah more, they ate less of the cabernet sauvignon. Therefore, thanks to this natural deficit, the 2016's will be made up of 60% cabernet.

Situation :
North Alpilles

Terroir :
Limestone and clay soil, very stony: Hauterivian et Barremian, second stage of the lower Cretaceous, less than 130 million years.

In the vineyard :
Beginning of the harvest: 14 September
End of the harvest: 24 september

Winemaking :
No de-stemming, yeasting or sulphur. Agening 24 months in foudres and barrels. Fining with fresh egg white. No filtration before bottling

Cépages :
Cabernet Sauvignon : 60%
Syrah : 40%
