Style: Red

Notes: Intense aromas of dark stewed fruit are complemented by delicate spicy notes. Medium-to-rich & smooth, the palate is beautifully balanced by freshness with wonderful purity of fruit on the finish.

 

The Carignan Noir grapes are organically grown in the Minervois, where the warm Mediterranean climate is influenced by the cooling effect of the sea, resulting in concentrated fruit with balancing freshness. The vineyard faces south & west, optimising exposure to the sun. As a result of the vine’s age (average of 60 years old), the ‘poor’ soils & the concentration that is sought by Olivier Coste, the vines are low yielding, producing just 30 hectolitres per hectare.

The 15-hectare vineyard is farmed in the traditional method, using mechanical tools rather than chemical herbicides to control weeds; pheromones are used rather than pesticides to reduce pests in the vineyard & grape pomace is employed as fertiliser to nourish the soils. In order to preserve the biodiversity of the vineyards, trees are continuously planted, over 2,000, in order to preserve & maintain the wildlife. The grapes are hand- harvested in the cool of the night, in order to retain freshness and quality.

 

Producer Info: Since his childhood, Olivier Coste’s favourite place to play was in the vineyards & the wine cellar at his family’s wine estate, which was founded in 1701 in Pézenas. With this upbringing, he developed a passion for nature, the Languedoc region & southern French wines. The vineyards are located a few kilometres from Pézenas where the Mediterranean Sea asserts its influence on the vines. The estate is certified HVE3, which complements the family’s existing ‘Carbon Neutral’ approach. They reduce their CO2 emissions, keeping them to a minimum & offset the rest by financing ecological initiatives, including projects in India. Olivier’s (OC)riginal Stars range has been created for those who appreciate a modern, fresh & fruity varietal wine & is complemented by quirky packaging.
