The story: “L i b r e” is raised in 2 ceramic eggs. With this creation, Hélène CHOUVET draws the absolute purity of wine from her terroirs. She chose to use as a label the reproduction of work n°7 by Ursula Caruel... the approach of this artist, passionate about botany, being to enter into resonance with nature, to extract form and breath from it. . “L i b r e” is similar to this approach: tasting this wine projects us into an ethereal, abstract world.
Tasting: The nose exudes notes of morello cherries, sweet spices reminiscent of hot countries. The attack is all in freshness, with a beautiful liveliness which underlines the notes of cocoa and black fruits. Aromas of liquorice complete the ample mouth, with grain and lots of volume. The incredibly supple tannins last indefinitely. The freshness on the finish keeps the wine in its perfect balance. “L i b r e” is an extremely pure wine, without artifice.
Pairings: on its own… or with a good rib of beef, shoulder of lamb. Cheese: a Salers, a Beaufort. Or to sublimate a Grand Cru dark chocolate!
Terroir: Sand and rolled pebbles.
In the vineyard: Organic farming. Traditional pruning in Gobelet (old Grenache) and Cord de Royat (Syrah). Tillage, contribution of sheep compost for the life of the soil.
Vinification: manual harvest. Sorting in the vineyard. Destemming. Indigenous yeasts. Maceration 3 weeks / 1 month. Pumping over and pigeage. Aging 12 months in ceramic eggs.
