This 'Prestige de Caroline' is one of Louis Chèze's absolute highlights. This wine has been made since 1987. The vineyards are located on the flanks of 'Brèze' and are completely south-oriented. The vineyards are planted with only Syrah grapes with an average age of 40 years old. Thanks to the age of the vines, the yield is only 35 hl per hectare. The substrate consists of granite, which is important for water permeability. The grapes are picked manually and are then fermented in thermo-regulated stainless steel tanks. After fermentation, a malolactic conversion and maturation take place in oak barrels. Only 20% new barrels and 80% second-year barrels are used for aging the wine for 14 months. In the nose we notice violet, green pepper and ripe blue forest fruits. When tasting we taste clear aromas of cassis, wild strawberry and a slightly spicy undertone. The finale is long and very balanced. This fine wine is best served in a slim wine glass; in its youth it can be decanted at least 30 minutes in advance. Enjoy tasting. Hello!
