Dom du Pech Abuse VdT 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Domaine du Pech is situated on the slopes of Sainte-Colombe-en-Bruilhois in the extreme south east of the appellation. The white gravels have excellent drainage and the consequent reflection of light and accumulation of heat ensures optimal maturity for the grapes. Viticulture is ―lutte raisonnée‖. No fertilizers have been used for twenty years. Since 2000 yields have been significantly reduced and since 2004 the drive towards biodynamic methods of cultivation has included the use of medicinal plants as well as minerals, thereby necessitating minimal treatments with copper or use of sulphur. Only natural yeasts and bacteria are used and the wines are bottled without filtration. Daniel Tissot, son of long-standing winemaking family in Jura, has been making wine and winning medals in the Cotes de Buzet since 1980. In 1997 the estate was taken over by his daughter Magali and her boyfriend Ludovic. The wines are a mix of Merlot (40%), Cabernet Sauvignon (30%) and Cabernet Franc (30%), the basic garnet-hued wine aged in old oak foudres after égrappage and three weeks vinification in stainless steel vats, developing striking prune and leather aromas after several years in the bottle. This wine will drink happily with rabbit with prunes or confits. These are wines of love and respect. If you love these wines, we‘ll respect you.
