Tasting notes

VOL DE NUIT is a direct pure expression of the Carignan grape variety with deep roots planted in schist.
This is a straightforward, refined, mineral and slightly spicy wine. It is characterized by dynamic scope and finishes with pure lines. Juicy and supple.

PERFECT FOOD PAIRING :
Hare stew à la royale

Personnality

2013 is a historically late vintage at Mas Amiel! The cold spring and mild summer produced grapes, that were exceptional, but limited in quantity. The year was characterized by a combination of the following factors: the weather during the 3 months leading up to the parcel’s harvest was sunny, but not too hot; the nights during the month of September were cool; and the altimetry allowed us to patiently wait for the harvest to perfectly mature on the 3rd of October 2013.

As a result, the freshness and balance of these great Carignan wines were revealed by the characteristics of this harvest.

Vinification

50-hl stainless steel vats.

HARVEST :
