Our oenologists' opinion
Garnet colour with brick sheen. Straightforward nose, on the bouquet. Notes of confied prune and leather. Opens on spices with a heady nose. Fleshy attack, full and well-balanced. Long on round and silky tannins. Full-bodied, spicy, liquorice notes. Sweet spicy finish. Good character.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.
Domain and appellation
Marked by the ancestral dynamism of Pézenas, the vineyard of Domaine Prieuré Saint Jean de Bébian is a figurehead thanks to its unique terroir and its great wines.
- Terroir: Spread over 32 hectares with the Cévennes as a backdrop, the white grape vines are planted on limestone soils worthy of the greatest terroirs of Burgundy and Champagne, with limestone levels above 30%. The red vines are planted on arid and stony limestone, clay-limestone and clay-silica soils.
- Viticulture: The vineyard was completely transformed in the 1960s with the addition of noble Rhone varieties (such as Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre) to the traditional Mediterranean varieties (such as Carignan and Cinsault). Harvesting is done by hand.
- Vinification: A slow maceration of 6 to 9 weeks is carried out. Depending on the grape variety, the wine is matured in Burgundy barrels and demi-muids (1/3 new wood, 1/3 1 year old wood and 1/3 2 year old wood).
