Cuvée des Ardoises

  • Variety

    30% Syrah, 40% Grenache, 30% Carignan. Our decision to retain this trio of varieties that are so characteristic of the Languedoc, and somewhat magical, for our Château des Erles wines has allowed us to achieve quite a remarkable overall balance.

  • Location

    The property's exposed 18 hectare vineyards of Ardoises and Abrigans are located on the rolling hillsides of «Les Côteaux de Villeneuve-les-Corbières» in the inland region
    of the Haut Fitou.

  • Tasting notes

    Deep red colour with bright purple lights.
    Good aromatic intensity of particularly red fruits (strawberry, raspberry, blackcurrant), vanilla and smoky notes.
    On the palate the wineis well-balanced and harmonious with a good structure and a
    remarkable freshness.

  • The Vintage

    Despite the dry winter, vines in the south of France benefitted from some rainfall during the spring and summer, which made for a balanced vegetative cycle.
    Summer temperatures were lower than the seasonal average, which slowed the maturing cycle and resulted in later harvests, producing more subtle and more complex grapes. On the 8th September, a full moon phase and plenty of sunshine brought three weeks of beautiful fine weather. And like everyone else, we were therefore pleasantly surprised by the splendid month of September, which made up for any delay in maturity.

  • Suggestions

    Roast pork with prunes, lamb chops, barbequed meat.
