The Domaine practices agriculture “raisonée” in all of vineyards, only treating their vines where absolutely necessary, in order to maximize the terroir (clay-limestone) characteristics of their wines. "We use organic compost which is only applied when soil deficiencies are revealed, following analysis of the soil and vine vegetation. When climatic conditions dictate we use organically permitted treatments (sulphur and copper) to protect the vines from mildew and oidium.The grapes are harvested by hand and with the best grapes selected on a sorting table in the vineyard."
The Cuvee Confiance is another step up in concentration and age-worthiness. But the sheer fruit quality also brings a beguiling sense of poise, delicacy and floral harmony to the immense presence of ripe, old vine fruit that lingers in its depths. Magic stuff with huge potential, this label won't stay so cheap for long -- grab this great vintage now! Grapes - Usually about 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre.
