Château JÉRÉMIE 2021 Terroir des Corbières AOP Corbières
Top 100 Wine Spectator
Château JÉRÉMIE is in the heart of the picturesque village of Fabrezan, close to Marseillette lake. Covering 65 hectares of vineyards, this estate embodies the quintessential Corbières terroir. Acquired in 2015 by Jean-Claude Mas, the vineyard has since undergone a remarkable transformation, with a fully renovated cellar ensuring optimal conditions for meticulous vinification.
Anchored in the Corbières terroir
Located on the road between the medieval cities of Carcassonne and Narbonne, the vineyards enjoy a privileged spot in the Corbières region. The vines, oriented East/West, are anchored in clay-limestone and silty-clay soils, offering an ideal balance for the region’s emblematic grape varieties.
A blend of excellence
Château JÉRÉMIE 2021 Terroir des Corbières AOP Corbières draws its strength from a thoughtful blend. A 45% Carignan, 30% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre blend, this wine reveals the richness and diversity of the terroir. The vines, on average twenty years of age, are cultivated according to environmentally friendly practices.
Each grape variety is treated individually. Carignan undergoes carbonic maceration, while Grenache and Syrah benefit from temperature-controlled fermentation followed by three weeks of extended maceration. The wines are blended following malolactic fermentation, before being aged in 30% American and French oak barrels for six months.
