GRAND MONT

Origin and originality

A NEW ADVENTURE THAT SEALS THE ASSOCIATION BETWEEN JEAN-FRANCOIS ROIT-LEVEQUE, HEAD OF CULTURE AT CLOS DES QUARTERONS AND AGNES AND XAVIER AMIRAULT

Grand Mont, is one of the most famous vineyards of the Bourgueil appellation. This magnificent parcel, located on the top of the commune of Benais, reveals powerful and deep Cabernet Franc, while remaining in finesse.

Soils

Terroir of clay-limestone, the plots of Grand Mont are laid on the middle part of the Turonian, a clay cover of variable thickness (from 50cm to 1 meter), rich in micaceous chalk particles.

Vine management

Our goal is a minimum of intervention per year, with two to three passes in between. The plot is in natural grassing only and without mowing. We use Biodynamics because the soils appreciate several passes of Maria-Thun dung compost, horn dung and 2 to 3 passes of horn silica. The majority of our biodynamic preparations come from the Groupement biodynamique based in Bourgueil. A manual work of disbudding and a late pruning, around the last two weeks of March.

Vinification

Our objective is to harvest by hand a perfectly healthy grape, at optimal maturity. The grapes are destemmed and sorted a second time in the cellar before being taken to the vats. We use only indigenous yeasts and vinify without any input. We proceed with a slow and measured infusion for 3 to 4 weeks.

Ageing

The free-run juice is poured into a 10hL earthenware jar and into 500L barrels. The wine is aged for 24 months in the Vau Renou cellars where it rests at ideal temperature and hygrometry.

A "classy wine" with a great complexity, that will pair well with dishes with a strong personality, such as a lamb tagine with spices and olives or a wild boar stew. A wine of style and character which is therefore a good match for foods with strong personality, like a wild boar stew or a and lamb tajine with olives and spices.
