In the continuity of a sustainable viticulture - Terra Vitis practices - Première Nature is the no sulphur cuvée of the Estate. A pure and simple expression of the soil of Grand Escalion.
The grapes come from our parcel named "Garance" on sandy loam soil. A well-drained soil that produces a rich and intense Merlot.
After an important follow-up work carried out in the parcel to obtain perfectly healthy grapes at optimum maturity, the harvest took place on September 4, 2018. The grapes were immediately pressed and placed in vats. The alcoholic fermentation, deliberately short (10 days) was done under neutral atmosphere with daily pumping over.
Vinification without added sulphites.
A very generous "nature" style with a fine, juicy structure. Fresh and charming with intense aromas of red fruits.
Store in a cool and dry place away from light.
Best enjoyed young.
Ideally open 1 or 2 hours before serving to oxygenate the wine and reveal its aromas.

The 44ha of the vineyard extend on gentle slopes that give their name to the estate. “Escalion” means “slope” in provençal language.
