Matured in wood, the wines can compete with the best French and New-World wines
The wines are powerful, well balanced and intense, because they are purely blended with the ripest and soundest fruit.
Les Romains « ROUGE », is mainly crafted from Merlot with a little touch of Cabernet Sauvignon. The grapes are harvested from the oldest vines in the vineyard: they are between 30 and 35 years old. The wine ages 12 months in French oak barrels. It is a majestic glass of wine, concentrated and well balanced, with silky tannins and an everlasting taste.
Les Mattes ‘Vieilles Vignes’ « Élevé en Fûts de Chêne », is made from our best Cabernet Sauvignon (50%) and Merlot (50%) grapes, grown from a small parcel on the higher parts of the vineyard. The wine ages in French oak barrels for 16 to 18 months. It is a concentrated and well balanced cuvée. There are flavours of coffee, plum, blackberry and a touch of tobacco; a satin-like texture, with soft tannins and a long finish.
Les Voiles Latines « Syrah – Grenache » A.O.P. Coteaux du Languedoc, this “unwooded” wine is mainly crafted out of our typical Languedoc grape: Syrah and Grenache. Only the most matured and healthiest grapes are selected and they are vinified in a thermo regulated stainless steel tank, to preserve all freshness and delicious fruit flavors. The variety of irresistible Mediterranean flavors makes this wine excellent to enjoy.
Les Romains – Black Label “Cuvée Réservée”, is the scarce counterpart of our cuvée Les Romains Rouge: instead of being a dominated Merlot wine, this Black Label is a dominated Cabernet wine. The selected grapes for this Black Label cuvée are harvested under optimal conditions and pampered for 12 month in French oak barrels. This ultimate cuvée has a wide fragrant bouquet, bursting with cassis and other red fruit nuances. We love this wine for its soft satin tannins, the palette with mocha, the fleshy black berries, the elegant hint of vanilla and its breath-taking long finish.
Les Romains « ROSĖ », is a tasty and crispy Rosé with a light pink- salmon colour. This colour is obtained by a very short ‘maceration pelliculaire’ which is important for colour extraction, but also for the flavor and the texture. The wine-press is turned on briefly at a very low pressure: a gentle ‘grape crushing’ leaves us with the heart of the grape’s juice.
Les Romains « BLANC », is a very tasty white wine, from the blend between Chardonnay and Viognier carefully selected. To create the perfect harmony, the winemakers base the wine on Chardonnay, to which they add a touch of his beloved Viognier. It is an exotic white and fresh wine, whose delight makes him the perfect everyday companion.
Les Mattes « Barrel Fermented » BLANC, is made from Chardonnay selected from the coolest parts of the vineyard. The wine is aged in French oak barrels for about 6 to 8 months. The result is starkling, with a rich bouquet of full-bodied fruit, intense aromas and the elegant touch of the new oak offers an exotic finish.
