The opinion of the sommelierThis wine is a true lesson of seduction. Per Dona (« for the woman » in Catalan) displays a purple red robe, releases aromas reminiscent of strawberry and cocoa and its tannins are soft as silk. Château Dona Baissas managed to put all the charms of a wine in the same bottle ; I am a spellbound man !
TerroirAt 200 meters above sea level, facing the Mediterranean Sea and facing south, the vineyard dominates Roussillon. The parcels are sloping and the soil is rich in brown schists. The schist, a flaky and fractured rock, allows the grapevines to infiltrate up to 7 - 8 meters into the ground to get the rainwater and minerals it needs to be fully developed.
Grape varietyIf Château Dona Baissas is a typical blend of southern wines, this is for a very good reason. Indeed, this assembly forms a very complementary trio. Grenache is expressed by its notes of red fruits, the syrah gives the freshness and a hint of spice and the Carignan carries off the matter with its tannins. A trio that expresses itself perfectly under the sun of Roussillon.
VintageIn 2014 spring in Roussillon was warm and dry, while the summer was cold and rainy. The berries were therefore already ripe at the beginning of the summer and the humidity of July-August exposed the vines to diseases. Fortunately, the winds that blew all the summer have preserved the sanitary condition of the vine thus allowing a remarkable vintage !
