La Sentinelle

« A true wine of pleasure, resolutely fruity. »

Terroir & vineyards

The vineyards of Domaine du Causse d’Arboras are planted on a plateau of limestone shards among the highest in the Languedoc (320 m altitude). For this wine we select the vines from the richest area in red clay soil for a style that is flexible. The warm and dry Mediterranean climate is tempered by the altitude and the continental influence of Larzac.
An assemblage where black Grenache plays a predominant role (40%) and completed by Syrah (30%) and Mourvèdre (30%).

Vinification and aging

Manual harvesting with sorting on the vine. Destemming. Fermentation in temperature-controlled coated concrete vats with pump-over. Maceration of Grenache grapes for a short period (10-15 days). Malolactic fermentation.

Tasting notes

A wine with a garnet red color and an expressive nose with fresh fruit aromas and slight smoky notes. Well balanced on the palate with soft tannins, it continues on a long, airy finish.
