Blason d'Aussières

The vintage

The relatively mild winter in 2020 led to an early bud break. A warm, relatively wet summer, with a hot, dry late summer period, without scorching high temperatures, allowed the grapes to reach their optimal aromatic potential slowly, whilst maintaining a sufficient level of acidity.
As the growth cycle progressed, the vines lost some of their advance and the grapes were harvested about ten days earlier than the previous vintage.


The estate is nestled in the rugged hills just behind the Mediterranean coastline of Narbonne, in the South of France.


This traditionnal Languedoc blend is made predominently of Syrah, with Carignan, Mourvèdre and Grenache, whilst the cooler terroir of Aussières confers the wine its exceptional balance and finesse.


Blason d'Aussières is made according to the traditional method. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel and concrete tanks. The Carignan partially undergoes carbonic maceration, contributing to its distinctive style. During fermentation regular pump overs allow a gentle extraction of the tannins and phenolic compounds. Once the fermentation is complete, the wine is left untouched for a couple of days. Total maceration time stretches 15-20 days.


The 2020 Blason has a deep colour with glints of crimson.
The forthcoming nose opens with notes of ripe red fruit, accompanied by hints of sweet spices and roasted dried fruit.
Generous and well-balanced on the palate with aromas of blackberry and redcurrant accompanied by notes of liquorice and hints of pepper. This wine offers all the scents and flavours of the garrigue !
