Terroir & vineyards
The Devois des Agneaux d’Aumelas is one of the Jeanjean family’s most historic properties. Formerly used for sheep farming (“Devois” means “pastureland” in Occitan), for the past 20 years it has served as a fine example of the quality and potential of Languedoc wines, enjoyed in France and beyond. Over 600 grazing sheep can still be heard bleating on the Plateau d’Aumelas to this day!
Vinification and aging
Harvesting by night to preserve the aromatic freshness of the grapes. Destemming. Direct pressing. Settling on lees for a few days, then clarification of must. Low-temperature fermentation (15-17°C) in stainless-steel vats.
An intense pink color for this wine with explosive aromas of strawberry, caramel and vanilla. The attack is frank and extends on vanilla notes and on a beautiful roundness, conferred by the aging in barrels.
