Domaine Alain Chabanon 'Coteaux du Languedoc' Campredon 2008
50% Syrah, 31% Mourvedre, 14% Grenache and 5% Carignan from vines with an average age of 16 years. With vineyard holdings around the village of Montpeyroux in the Languedoc, Alain practices organic viticulture and works the vineyards by hand. Grapes are handpicked in the morning hours to be sure they stay fresh. Then they are taken to the winery in small open weave baskets, where they are hand sorted. The wines undergo long macerations, with a minimum of four to five weeks for all varieties, and fermentation takes place on natural yeasts. Yields are very low. Aged in stainless for 6 months.
