Domaine de Montcalmes, a famous estate in Languedoc.


frederic-poutalie-montcalmes-languedoc-terrasses-du-larzacDomaine de Montcalmes is now managed by Frederic Pourtalie and his sister Muriel, after the departure in 2010 of their cousin Vincent Guizard to create his own estate of 6 hectares (named Saint-Sylvestre, to follow very closely!). But Montcalmes remains in good hands: Frederic Pourtalie has been trained at Grange des Peres with Laurent Vaille, as well as Alain Graillot.

Since 1999, until 2011, Montcalmes has produced a red and a white, both with great potential of ageing. The vines of Montcalmes are ideally located and oriented: mourvedres are oriented north-west and south to Aniane on a soil of pebbles rolled reminiscent of Chateauneuf-du-Pape (neighboring La Grange des Peres and Mas Daumas Gassac). Syrahs and grenache (30 years on average) are oriented north, in Puechabon, a plateau of limestone lake. The reds are now in AOC "Terrasses du Larzac", created in spring 2014.

The vines of the estate are meticulously managed: plowed, pruned short, yields are kept very low (20 to 25 hl / ha) thanks to harvesting in green (manual). The grape harvest - always manual - is destemmed, crushed and then gravitated. For the reds, the maceration lasts about a month, with exclusive pigeage on the three grape varieties. The wines are aged in old barrels of Romanee Conti of 1, 2 or 3 wines during 2 years. The vines, vinified separately, are blended 2 months before bottling, which takes place without filtration in Old Moon.

Since 2011, two new red cuvees have been produced following numerous trials and blends: "Le Geai", in Coteaux du Languedoc appellation, a GSM blend with a majority of Grenache, and "Grenache", a Vin de France 100% Grenache.

2015 is the first organic certified vintage.
