The opinion of the sommelier

« You probably have some difficulties to pronounce the name of this cuvee, don’t you? Ampeloméryx is a word that refers to a prehistoric mammal that had the habit to chew grapevine. But don’t worry, this cuvee has no animal taste! This is a nice cuvee with a beautiful crystalline robe containing white gold reflections. Appreciate its fresh mouth and its pink grapefruit hints. »
 

Terroir

Located on the slope of the Château de Pellehaut at an altitude of over 180m, the vineyard benefits from a nice sunlight. This climatic factor enables grapes to be more mature, with more sugar and less acidity. This makes the wine smoother.

lecepage Grape variety

The Gros Manseng comes from the Pau region, in the south of France. For many years, this grape variety was only cultivated in this region, but other regions also started to cultivate it in recent years. It produces wines that are dry with quince and apricot hints.

lemillesime Vintage

Southwest of France suffered from bad climatic conditions in 2012. Indeed, it rained a lot during the year, which worried a lot the winemakers of this region. The high humidity made diseases such as mildew and powdery mildew spreading out. But, when winemakers master the oenological techniques, they almost always produce very good wines.

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

In France, in the Gers region, the Béraut family continues to carry on the mixed farming tradition: vineyards, bovines and grains. We don’t have time to be bored in the Pellehaut domain! An interesting point is that the family comes from Montreal, but they surprisingly don’t have any accent. Indeed, apart from being the capital city of Quebec, Montreal is also a small village in the Gers region.
