L’Alchimiste Black Edition

Powerful and elegant


24.00 

The wine displays an intense colour with ruby tints. Lovely jammy notes of blackcurrants and blueberries are delicately combined with the aromas of roasting. The well-structured palate unfolds with a complex and powerful mixture of candied fruit, laurel and cocoa. The lingering finish is lifted by a touch of spice. An explosion of flavours on the palate !

 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

At the bottom of the Larzac foothills, 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 stylish and powerful wine.

 

 Winemaking

The Carignan is vinified in whole bunches to intensify the wine’s aromatic expression. The Syrah and Grenache are vinified separately with long three-week vatting periods to confer complexity and structure to the wine. The elegance and finesse of this wine are expressed after 12 months of barrel ageing.
