“Like Jardin Zen, this wine is a perfect example of fine balance
between light, airy fruitiness and magnificent silkiness of tannins.
A superb expression of Syrah!” Jean-Michel Borja
In the heart of the vineyard of Domaine des Clairmonts, we find Jardin Zen by Erik Borja, brother of Jean Michel, founder of Clairmont. The well named garden is a haven of peace devoted to Japanese culture and Mother Nature. This wine named Jardin Zen is an interpretation full of the flavours of this quest to achieve fine balance between being a gardener and a winegrower.
The vineyard of Domaine des Clairmont has used organic growing methods since 1997. The plots, each one located in the area of Beaumont-Monteux, are cared for by protecting all the qualities of the soil and the biodiversity of the self-propagating plants. The soil, deep, silty-sand, originates from ancient low terraces of pebbles from the Isère.
After complete de-stemming, the grapes undergo a period of maceration lasting 21 days in concrete vats with several sessions daily of pumping-over in order to encourage the extraction of colour and tannins.
With a deep purple hue, Jardin Zen is a delicious, supple, fresh, silky wine. On the nose it reveals an abundance of aromas focused on small black fruits (fresh blackcurrant) and discreet hints of spices.
Jardin Zen will of course be very inspired by chicken yakitori. It will also pair marvellously with the flavour of rack of lamb or the soft moistness of Saint-Marcellin cheese.
