Ampelomeryx Rouge 2015 - Domaine de Pellehaut, Côtes de Gascogne

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

Some of you might already know the name of Pellehaut as it’s the third time that one of their wines is in a VitiBox. Once again, the Béraut brothers demonstrate their great ability to mix quality and creativity. Ampéloméryx is indeed a very uncommon blend of pinot noir, syrah and cabernet sauvignon. The result is a fresh wine with remarkably fine tanins and very nice aromas of raspberry and chlorophyll. 

 

Terroir

Blends are not the only original touch of the Béraut brothers approach. Indeed, they are also advocates of mixed farming. Therefore, at Pellehaut, you’ll not only find vines but also various cereals (mainly corn and wheat) and cows ! The cows are fed with the cereals and give manure that is used to organically grow the vines. Everything makes perfect sense !

lecepage Grape variety

Pinot noir is Burgundy’s exclusive black variety, syrah is the main variety in Rhône Valley and cabernet-sauvignon is Bordeaux’s best known variety. As you understand, drinking those three varieties in a single wine is a rather rare experience. It’s even more unexpected in a wine from Gascogne ! Indeed, the main black varieties there are tannat, merlot and cabernet-franc…

lemillesime Vintage

2015 was a great vintage in the South West of France. Spring was warm and dry ; the flowering was early so the grapes had a long time to ripen. Summer was hot during the day but fresh enough during the night to ensure the grapes would not get overloaded with sugar. These exceptional conditions gave very flattering wines with fine yet present tannins. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

Martin and Mathieu Béraut do not have any organic or biodynamic certification, but the least we can say is that they do their best to preserve environment ! Indeed, they only work with natural products and as we already pointed, they produce themselves most of what they need to grow their vines and cereals. In addition to all that, they invested in sophisticated winemaking tools to consume the less electricity and fuel possible.
