Les Cépages Syrah IGP Pays d 'Oc is one of the grape varieties produced by Baron Philippe de Rothschild. The vineyards are located in the best locations in Languedoc-Roussillon in the south of France. This fine Syrah presents itself in the glass with intense violet color, on the nose it presents a bouquet of aromas reminiscent of blackberries, blackcurrants and a touch of pepper. The wine opens and the scents intensify when it has a little longer oxygen contact. On the palate, the full fruit and typical peppery notes of Syrah can be tasted well, supported by well-integrated tannins and its round, elegant finish.
Cultivation and vinification for Les Cépages Syrah Pays d 'Oc by Baron Philippe de Rothschild
Around the city of Limoux, the vines of the "Les Cépages" - wines find the best conditions in terroir and climate to perfectly develop their varietal aromas. The soils are heavily influenced by lime, sand and clay, hot temperatures during the day and the simultaneously cooling sea breeze from the Mediterranean, help to convince the resulting wine with powerful body, rich, intense fruit and elegance.
The grapes from the different vineyard parcels are vinified separately. Only at the end of the process are they harmoniously coordinated with each other. The maceration of the grapes takes place before fermentation so that the fresh fruit aromas can be optimally extracted. Fermentation at a controlled temperature takes about six days, another 15 days of maceration is required before all other flavours, colours and tannins pass into the mash and give the wine its variety of aromas.
