100% Carignan from 60-year-old vines grown biodynamically (certified by Demeter) planted on clay-limestone terraces bordered by woods in the commune of Saint Marcel d'Ardèche. Harvested by hand. Vinification: 6 days of carbonic maceration in whole bunches, gentle pressing, aged partly in barrels that have seen several wines and partly in enamelled steel vats. Bottled at the estate without fining or filtration, just a micro-dose of sulphur at bottling. A real crisp juice to be served a bit chilled.
Florence and Olivier Leriche, partners in life and in the vineyard, are the winemakers behind Domaine des Accoles, an 18-ha biodynamic estate in Saint-Marcel d'Ardèche. Accoles (which means terraces in the ancient Occitan language) was founded in 2011, but the talented duo had already made a name for themselves in the wine world much earlier. After studies in agricultural engineering in Bordeaux and oenology in Dijon, Olivier found an internship at Domaine de l'Arlot in Burgundy, "almost by chance". That was September 1998... 13 years later, he had converted the estate to biodynamics and become its manager! Yet a longing to return to their roots, and the purchase of several exceptional parcels of old vines in Ardèche, led them to embark on this new adventure. Today, they classify all their wines as Vin de France, preferring the freedom to vinify terroir-driven cuvées, using long maturation periods and low doses of sulphur – sage practices that have yielded more than convincing results in the bottle!
