Clos Mathélisse / Exorde 2017

90% Cinsault et 10% Syrah


David likes the freshness and the fruitiness, and favors drinkability with light to medium bodied red wines. In that aspect, he definitely doesn’t produce traditional Languedoc’s wines.

Why this name? 
Exorde is the name of this first cuvée, when he established himself as a winemaker.

In French, “Exorde” means introduction, preamble. So this wine is his introduction as a producer.

How was this cuvée born?
David, the winemaker, wanted to find a good balance between the two cépages, giving texture and roundness with the Syrah, but keeping the freshness and lightness of the Cinsault. So he did lots of tests to reach a satisfying result, and only kept 10% of Syrah coupled with a short macération.
