“Although powerful and slightly woody,
I love this wine for its femininity. It is made
with grapes from vines I touch every day
and I’m beginning to find my own little hallmark in it!” Barbara Schmid-Borja
Meat, meals with character
Domaine des Clairmonts, the founding base of Clairmont, has been established in the heart of the Crozes-Hermitage since 1963. This Syrah wine – successor of “Domaine des Clairmonts” – comes from the old and low pebbles terraces of l’Isère, a sandy-clayey soil.. In 1997, the domain made the decision to convert to organic winegrowing methods which protect all the natural qualities of the soil and the diversity of self-propagating plants.
The grapes were systematically de-stemmed. For a gentle extraction of tannin and colour, the period of maceration stretches out from 21 to 30 days, doing several daily sessions of pumping-over. Maturation in French oak barrels lasts for 12 months.
With a vivid red hue, this powerful, complex wine expresses aromas of chocolate-vanilla with intense spicy flavours of spices and pepper. The palate is ample and the wine opens up on fresh, delicious flavours of black fruit, spices and a fresh and lovely eucalyptus finish. The structure is carried by silky tannins typical of terroir from Beaumont-Monteux. A very long finish with a light and great acidity.
PAIRING WITH FOOD
