Domaine La Tour Vieille Collioure La Pinede 750ml 2011      
Sku: 1845396*

This wine ‘La Pinede’ is made mainly from the parcel of land by the Tourette dominating Collioure from which the domain La Tour Vieille takes its name.

 Wine Advocate 88 points (Jan 2014)
Campadieu’s and Cantie’s as usual Grenache-dominated 2011 Collioure La Pinede – here supplemented by Carignan – offers a lovely ripe, juicy meld of strawberry and mulberry with a stony undertone, with kelp and peat accents. While only modestly persistent, this polished blend ought to prove delightfully adaptable at table through at least 2016.

Wine maker notes
‘Collioure ‘La Pinede’ is a supple and silky red wine that contains all the strength of the Mediterranean soil from where it comes. Served cool at 16’C it is excellent with meat and fish dishes. Start drinking it from its second year but it can be kept patiently for up to about 10 years when its true structure will be revealed.

Technical notes
Varieties : Carignan (25%), Grenache Noir (75%) Yield : 35 to 40 hectolitres / hectare Density of Planting : 5000 to 6000 plants per hectare Graft : majority being Richter 110 Date of Harvest : Between 1st and mid-September. The Grenache grapes are cut first. Vinification : Traditional vinification is used with the harvested grapes being de-stalked, half-crushed & a long maceration of 3 weeks. The temperature is controlled for fermentation, with traditional method of crushing with bare feet (pigeages) & regular pumping out & refilling (remontage) of the vat to accentuate maximum maceration, provide body to the wine and produce the best possible colour. We use only the fresher first pressings and use little or no filtration. Elevage : This wine is matured in vats and put into bottle 12 months following the harvest.
