Domaine Belles Pierres Chant des Âmes Red 2016
AOP Languedoc

Meaning “Song of Souls,” Chant des Âmes is the ultimate expression of the best grapes from the finest vines at Domaine Belles Pierres.

Grapes: 50% Mourvèdre, 50% Syrah

Alcohol: 14.5% by volume

Production: 5000 bottles
Winemaking:
The grapes are handpicked at their ideal ripeness from vines that are up to 40 years old. Traditional vinification with regular punching down during fermentation. Long maceration, from 25 to 35 days depending on the grape variety. The wine is aged in French oak barrels (10% new) for 18 months.

Tasting Notes:
Deep ruby in color with bluish highlights, the wine opens with fragrant red plum and cherry aromas. These continue to develop on the palate, with ripe blackberry, cassis, cinnamon, bay leaf and fennel. Velvety in the mouth with good tannins and well-balanced acidity. The long and satisfying finish captures the richness of the terroir. Younger vintages benefit from decanting prior to serving.

About Domaine Belles Pierres:
Domaine Belles Pierres is located in the village of Murviel les Montpellier, in the terroir of Saint Georges d’Orques in the Languedoc. Owner and winemaker Damien Coste continues the tradition of his father Joseph (“Jo”), with high quality, small production Rhône-style wines made entirely from handpicked grapes. The 20 hectares of vineyards are set on rolling hills with silica-rich limestone and marl soils, and are influenced by the nearby Mediterranean. It is said the wines of Saint Georges d’Orques were the favorite of Thomas Jefferson; more recently the wines of Domaine Belles Pierres have been enjoyed by French presidents and visiting dignitaries, and are stocked in the cellar of the Élysée Palace.
