COUP DE COEUR DU GUIDE HACHETTE 2013
The name ‘ la Jasse ’ means ‘sheepfold’ in Occitan (a regional language).
This cuvée is elaborated from Syrah planted on a lower slope and on a terroir with a very chalky base called "mas du goulou". Ripening takes place early; the small dark grapes bring in compact tannins and a range of deep, complex aromas, while keeping a surprising freshness: small red berries, cocoa, truffle, camphor, bay leaf, liquorice and violet.
Harvesting done by hand, average yield of 20hl/ha, full destemming, punching of the cap, 4-week maceration.
Actually 2013 is available.
