Domaine de L'Arjolle, South of France
Since this year, winemaker François Teisserenc has been responsible for the wines of Domaine de l'Arjolle near Béziers in southern France. However, François' influence has been noticeable for a few years. The style of the wines is changing, following the trend towards more elegance and refinement. François achieves this by extracting less tannin from the grape skin during fermentation and then applying less oak maturation. The transition from the 'old' to the new Cuvée Cabernet Merlot is a good example of this.
This harvest is characterized by perfectly ripe grapes without any fungus or rot and the very late harvest time. The merlot grapes were harvested at the beginning of October and the cabernet grapes were not even harvested until between 20 and 25 October. Other winemakers are easily seduced and make powerful dark-colored wines with such a good harvest. But François allowed the skin of the grapes to ferment for a shorter time for this cuvée.
For maturation, he selected barrels from the famous tonnelier Seguin Moreau, who produces barrels from Burgundy that mainly ensure elegance and refinement. The wine from these barrels is combined with wine that has matured exclusively in concrete tanks. This results in a beautifully balanced red wine with the appropriate name Équilibre.
