Domaine Des Deux Cles - Corbières Blanc 2019
65% Macabeu, 15% Grenache Blanc, 15% Grenache Gris, 5% Vermentino
Sourced from multi parcels between 800 ? 920 feet altitude on clay and limestone soils. Each variety and parcel are pressed separately. The juice undergoes 2 days of cold settling, then is racked off the gross lees straight into barrels. Fermentation begins naturally using only indigenous yeasts and is carried out entirely in 228L French oak barrels. Stirring of the fine lees begins near the end of alcoholic fermentation. In 2019 malolactic fermentation was partly blocked to preserve freshness in the wine. Aged 7-8 months, in 228L French oak barrels with 20% of the volume in new barrels. The barrels are made from tight grained French oak that is lightly toasted, and specially selected from the coopers Chassin, Damy and Claude Gillet. Racked and blended one month prior to bottling. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.
