Negre is a blend 75% Grenache and 25% Carignan, again from mature vines sited around Capçanes. The 25-year-old (average) bush vines sit at 350 metres on varying exposures of limestone, clay and slate. This release was 100% whole bunch fermented in tank only, with a gentle yet short fermentation that took only around seven to eight days. Following this, the wine rested in tank for six months. Bottled unfiltered. The ABV is just 13%. Light in colour and with a bright, juicy personality, this is a wine inspired by the ancient releases of ‘burgundy-like’ wines once made by the Scala Dei monastery. Everything old is new again.
