VDF Rouge "La Providence"

2020
France
Provence

80% Carignan/20% Cinsault. The 2020 "La Providence" was first vintage of the first wine from Domaine La Providence. In northern Provence at 280-300 meters above sea level, the vineyard soils are mainly sandy, silty, stony, rich in limestone and low on clay. Vine age ranges from 38 to 55 years old. The farming is certified organic and the harvest manual, with the two varieties picked and vinified separately. The bunches are left whole to undergo a 10-day carbonic maceration, followed by a traditional fermentation with indigneous yeasts, all in tank. The wines are aged in 500-liter demi-muids and then blended and bottled without fining or filtering and with a modest amount of sulfur. Though Domaine La Providence and its vines are within the Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence AOC, the wine is a Vin de France because the blend doesn't fit the appellation requirements.
