PRODUCER
Owned by brothers Yves and Hugues Ricome for over 30 years, Domaine La Croix Gratiot covers 27 hectares in Montagnac in the Coteaux du Languedoc. After years of selling to the local co- operative, Yves started bottling his own wine in 2005. His daughter Anaïs has now taken charge, after working for some time in New Zealand with Matt Thomson, and makes wonderfully pure wines that reflect the potential of the local varieties with which she works. The domaine has been practising biodynamic since 2016 and is currently in conversion. The first certified vintage will be in 2021.
VINEYARDS
Domaine La Croix Gratiot is situated near the village of Montagnac, very close to the Mediterranean Sea. The vines are planted on a loamy-limestone soil. They benefit from the sea breezes and the microclimate enables the grapes to reach optimal maturity and fully express the typical Mediterranean character.
VINTAGE
The 2018 growing season began with a cold and rainy winter. Welcome rainfall in spring brought balanced resources for the vines during the hot and dry summer months which followed. Harvest started early on 25th August, the grapes were harvested at night to ensure they were cool when arriving at the winery and retained freshness and aromatics.
VINIFICATION
Grapes were hand picked and sorted meticulously at the winery prior to crushing and pressing. Fermentation took place in open- top fermenters for three weeks with optimum extraction of colour and tannins achieved by twice daily punch downs. The wine was aged in old oak barriques for 12 months before bottling.
TASTING NOTES
This wine is bright ruby in the glass, and has an elegant aromatic nose with notes of red cherries, plum and a hint of cinnamon. It is full bodied, the palate has fine, silky tannins and finishes with
lingering cherry flavours.
