Winery: Segna de Cor ‒ an anagram of Roc des Anges ‒ is a blend of our youngest carignan vines. Simplicity describes it best, and with good reason. It is crafted to be an easy-going, food-friendly wine. Vibrant and straightforward, it is a great partner for rich dishes, BBQ, aperitif with friends, etc.
Tasting Note: In the glass, the dark purple of the wine flashes of magenta at the edge. Aromatically, the ripe blackberries, griotte cherries, dried plums, and dark chocolate give way to dark cocoa and pine needles as the wine evolves in the glass. The taste is warm with a beautifully textured core of dark fruit framed by silky tannins and a stimulating mineral lift.
- Varieties: 40% Grenache Noir, 30% Carignan, 30% Syrah
- Vine Age: 30 to 40 years old on average
- Terroir: A blend of about 20 small parcels on schists
- Winemaking: Mostly destemmed, though whole bunch is used and varies on the vintage but not usually more than 10%. Ambient yeast fermentation with pieds de cuve in closed concrete tanks for 7 days, then pressed and racked back to tank to finish fermentation. No temperature control. No punching down or pump overs. Aged in tank for approximately 10 months. No fining, light filtration. Total sulfur at bottling 30 to 50ppm. (good amounts, not too much but thankfully not to little) Held for several months in bottle before release.
