One bottle of Picpoul and one Malbec.
PICPOUL DE PINET
Duc de Morny
This is the perfect wine to match with shellfish, slightly perfumed wit ripe melon on the nose. Fresh and weighty on the palate with good fruit balance lifted by a crisp note on the finish, typical of the wines from this area. Cave de l'Ormarine's vineyards lie at approximately 40 metres above sea level on a chalky clay plateau, rich in Cretaceous limestone and quartz. The vineyards lie to the North of the Lac de Thau and slope towards it.
Cyril Payon is a meticulous winemaker and he carefully selects and picks his grapes from 15 year old vines at different times to capture different flavour profiles. They are de-stemmed and macerated on their skins followed by a fifteen-day fermentation without malolactic fermentation.
Chakana Atorrante Malbec is the entry point wine to Chakana’s excellent range of malbecs. It is the new name for what was originally labelled simply “Chakana Malbec”.
Purple-red in color and sultry fruity in scent, with spicy nuances. The taste is round, mild and full, the aftertaste is aromatic and persistent. A beautifully balanced red wine with length and suppleness.
Gabriel Bloise, the winemaker of Chakana, does not like bombastic wines with a lot of oak. He therefore strives for a smooth, elegant, drinkable style. Moreover, he is an avid fan of organic cultivation, which he has now largely implemented at Chakana.
The vineyards are at the foot of the Andes, at least 1,000 meters high. The climate here is more moderate than in the lower plains, with a big difference in day and night temperatures. As a result, the grapes ripen there slower and longer, so that the tannins in the skins also mature. Gabriel nevertheless monitors the fresh style that he seeks, which distinguishes his wines from the many, 'thick' and almost sweet-tasting Mendoza wines.
