100% Périgord Noir, a unique varietal related to Malbec but with a less tannic, more intense fruit structure. Planted in 2010, it took 5 years of painstaking effort to grow 20,000 vines from seed since this heritage variety hasn’t been used for over 100 years. This was only enough to replant 3 hectares (of the original royal vineyard of 2500 hectares.)
The only vineyard in the Coteaux de Sorges appellations and the only (known) vineyard in the world planted to Périgord Noir.
Jacques Desvernois, a cousin of Mr. de Latour, has made the 10 best vintages of La Chapelle for Paul Jaboulet.
Today he is the Director of Winemaking for E. Guigal where he continues his excellent career.
Cold maceration for 3 days to extract the fruit.
Fermented in temperature-controlled tanks, and then aged for 18 months in 30% new oak French barrels and 70% neutral in a combination of Saury, Sylvain, Seguin Moreau and Remon.
The wine is aged in bottle until the winery feels it is ready for release; the current vintage is 2014.
Production very limited: approximately 10,000 bottles per year, but no production in 2017 and 50% production in 2018/2019.
Very limited allocation available for Japan.
Pairs excellently with truffle dishes!
