L’Affranchi


8.50 

Syrah, Grenache and Carignan blend together with finesse and lend this wine a delicate nose of ripe fruit and toasted notes. The palate is powerful, silky and dense.

 History

Château Saint Jean d’Aumières is located in the heart of the prestigious Terrasses du Larzac. The vine has been cultivated here since ancient times by the Romans, then by the Benedictine monks who founded the abbeys of Aniane and Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert at the turn of the 9th century.

 

 Terroir

The Château St-Jean d’Aumières vineyards extend over the limestone hillsides that overlook the gorges of the upper Hérault valley. Here the Syrah, Grenache and Carignan grapes are able to reach perfect ripeness and produce this elegant and distinguished wine.

 

 Winemaking

The vatting temperature is between 25 and 30°C. The extraction, which is carried out through pumping over and rack and return operations, remains gentle to ensure the wine contains only the silkiest part of the grapes’ tannins. The Carignans are vinified in whole bunches. Partial ageing in barrels further builds the body and character of this wine.
