Tasting Notes: Cristal is made of 100% Macabeu, but macerated with the marc of Raphaels Lledoner Pelut (a special red grape variety). The result is a deep pink/light red wine, unfiltered or fined no sulfites. Fresh, mineral, full of energy and blueberries in your glass!
Tasting Notes: The vine is 100 years old and more. Sébastien let it quietly die, he doesn't pull it up. As a result, the yields are very low, but the juice is magnificent in its complexity. Beautiful concentration and freshness.
Tasting Notes: With the cuvée Futur, Raphaël Baissas de Chastenet signs for his second vintage an exceptional bottle. A frank and free wine, rather discreet at the opening but which will evolve magnificently well over the next 4 years. The most pressed will decant for half an hour to enjoy it on the youth!
Tasting Notes: "Juste Ciel", a wine that calls for summer, fresh grilled fish, marinated supions, sea urchins, carpaccio de Saint Jacques.... In short, "La Petite Baigneuse" delivers here a wine to be enjoyed by the poolside with a Mediterranean meal thanks to its delicacy, its freshness and its notes of candied fruits. A very nice white wine to share with a nice meal.
Tasting Notes: This bright, fresh and juicy red (mainly Cinsault) is great value. It's practically bursting with strawberry and red cherry, with earthy undertones and a touch of fine tannin. Manual harvest, vatting in whole clusters for 48h, without reassembly or batonnage. Six months whole bunch in concrete tank, bottled with no SO2.
Tasting Notes: A wine that lifts Syrah and Mourvédre from something recognizably rustic into a lightness of rose and violet florality, the moment before fruit. There is something underripe in this blend, but its underripeness is not commanded by a feeling of “greenness” or “stalkiness.” This is fruit with promise and flower with a winking farewell. Prickly textured, a kind of red you’ll have a hard time not swooshing.
