More info

The Château de l'Aumérade is a 400 year old French vineyard located in the sheltered plain of Pierrefeu, in the heart of Provençe and encompasses 550 hectares of vines under the watchful ownership of Henri Fabre. Its red, mineral rich soils elevate the quality from other areas of the Provence appellation. In 1950 the estate was awarded its first distinction and was designated as 'Cru Classé'. The estate celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2006.

Château Aumerade holds the Haute Valeur Environmentale (HVE) certification, which officially recognises the environmental performance of winegrowers, including biodiversity conservation, plant protection strategies, managed fertiliser use and water resource management. Located just a few miles from the coast, the vines receive cooling ventilation from the salty Mistral winds blowing in from the sea. The vineyard soils are predominantly clay limestone, which help to impart a spicy mineral character to the final wine. The harvest takes place at the beginning of September when the grapes have reached good phenolic maturity.

The grapes were carefully sorted and immediately destemmed. The Fabre family introduced an innovative way to transport the berries to the press by gravity, via refrigerated tubes which helps to preserve the aromatics in the fruit. The berries were gently pressed and the juice was cooled to 13°C. Following static settling, fermentation took place at controlled temperatures of 17 to 22°C in stainless steel tanks, to retain the purity of flavour. Fermentation lasted for 10 days, then racking and blending took place at the end of the year.
