The opinion of the sommelier

“ Sophie Giraudin considers Les Terrassettes as “the cuvee for my friends”. It’s the most important and representative between all her wines. This tipple is light and complex at the same time, and this is what I love most. It’s rare to find a quality carignan, however, when they are well made, they are simply wonderful!”
 

Terroir

Vineyards are situated in the heart of the Corbière denomination and they grow on clayey-limestone and silt-laden soil. Silts are granular material of a size somewhere between sand and clay and they occur as soil on a surface water body. Silts are very beneficial for soil’s fertility. Finally, the name of this wine, Terrassettes, comes from its terraced vineyards.

lecepage Grape Variety

The varietal carignan perfectly complements the syrah and it finds its natural environment in the Corbières. Once, carignan had a bad reputation due to its large diffusion. Thanks to the progress in winemaking techniques, many winemakers produce great wines based on this grape variety.

lemillesime Vintage

According to Jean-Pierre Thene, president of the organisation for the defence and management of Corbières “winemakers haven’t seen such favourable climate conditions for the last 5 years”. Wines were more balanced and fresher than the last years.

lerecoltant Winemaker

Owner of this winery since 2000, Sophie Giraudin likes calling herself “zero-generation winemaker”. She only produces Bio-certified wines and she also respects some principles of biodynamic agriculture. This practice consists in intensifying the exchange between grapevines and their environment (soil and air). The goal is to reach a better expression of the terroir and producing beautiful wines.
