2016 Rectorie L'Argile (Garnacha blanca and Garnacha gris)

TASTING NOTES:

  • View: 2016 Rectorie L'Argile has an enchanting rose gold colour.
  • Nose: Buttery feeling on the nose, with fresh, citrus aromas, combined with anise, pepper, stone fruit, and melons.
  • Mouth: Creamy, but fresh on the palate, with a medium body. Melon notes on the mouth, with a spicy undertone from the oak. The finish is elegant and lingering.

APPELLATION: Collioure

VINEYARD: Domaine de la Rectorie. With a history that dates back to 1984, this family business has infused a long line of experience into the crafting of high-quality wines. With climate change, the vineyard has taken a more natural approach to the agriculture, favouring the lands protected from excess heat. This has allowed for the cultivation of more resistant vines, producing grapes full of flavour.

GRAPES: 90% Grenache gris, and 10% Grenache blanc.

AGEING: Ager for eight months directly on its lees.

PREPARATION: After harvesting, the grapes are directly pressed and fermented in oak barrels with a strict battonage schedule. The must is stirred every day while in the fermentation stage, and once completed, it is done once a week. The last three months prior to bottling, the wine is left unstirred to enhance its character.

PAIRING: Perfect to be served with fish, white meat, and cow or sheep hard cheese.

RIGHT SERVING TEMPERATURE: 10-12°C

ALCOHOL: 14%

Rectorie L'Argile 2016

Pale crystalline dress. Complex nose with floral, vanilla and mineral notes. On the palate we find a rather round attack, balanced, finesse, and notes of minerality due to the terroir.

Rectorie L'Argile 2016

Here we must say that this wine is unanimous in Cave Spiritual. Aromas haunting, superb balance, finesse and incredible length are the adjectives that perfectly sum up this bottle. We are in the presence of a great bottle, already drinking well now and will support as much a few years in the cellar. Magnificent.
