Doix /2014

Elegance and complexity, exclusive and strong personality; very limited production.

FEATURES:

  • GRAPE VARIETIES: 55% Carignan and 45% Grenache
  • ALCOHOLIC CONTENT: 14.5%
  • SOILS & VINES: Doix estate vineyards are situated at a height of 350/500 meters above sea level on hillsides of pronounced slopes, with the characteristic slate soil called "licorella". The grapes come from vines between 80 and 105 years old, with a small but exceptional average production of 400 gr per vine.
  • VINTAGE AND CLIMATE: A good vintage, without lack of rain, mild temperatures and the typical dry summer. A warm and rainy September made the harvest complex and required a large selection of grapes, which came with a good tannic structure, concentration of flavors and very refreshing acidity.
  • AGEING: The elaboration process followed temperature-controlled fermentation with a total maceration period of about 4/5 weeks what allowed a progressive and excellent extraction. The ageing was of 16 months in new French oak.
