8 grape varieties from Mas Delmas are used depending on the different harvests for the white and rosé wines.
It is a selection made by the winemaker in order to guarantee the balance of the wine, always searched
and found!
Available production: currently 2014: 300 bottles.

This wine comes from several plots at different altitudes (100 to 200 m) and different soils.
(clay-limestone with schistose subsoil and soil of alluvial origin), it is difficult to define it, precisely.
Yields vary according to the grape varieties: from 12 hl/ha to 35 hl/ha.

The particularity of this wine is that it is the result of several grape harvests and vinification.
Explanations: when, as the harvest progresses, the grapes for the white wines and wines rosé wines are
pressed and their juices put at 6°C in their reciprocal tanks, it is made a vegetable deposit called « bourbes ».
In 2013, some bourbes were selected and vinified all together and gave as result this magnificent wine so astonishing. The vinification takes place in barrels with a maturing period of 1 year. During this year, a beginning of oxidation begins. The living wine then produces yeasts which come to the surface to form a veil limiting the effect of oxidation which then becomes a fine and subtle aromatic. A passage of 5 years in barrels has given it superb aromas.

Difficult to give so much complexity of this wine allows you to play with it and imagine the agreements.
Each time a Sommelier tastes this wine, ideas come up and are added to others.
However, there are a few ideas: Pata Negra ham, anchovies, very spicy dishes, cheeses, etc.
