Description

Domaine Rotier Renaissance 2014 – Gaillac

The premium dessert wine of the Domaine, made with the local indegenous grape Loin de l’Oeil. The bunches are hand harvested at full maturity when they are fully affected by the botrytis (noble rot). It usually takes 3 to 4 successive pickings over a period of 2 to 3 weeks, producing a low yield of 15 to 25 hl/ha depending on the vintage. This process will produce a wine reaching a residual sugar of 170 to 200g/l depending on the vintage. Following the pressing, the fermentation is carried out in French oak barrels of 400 litres at 18°C, which can take up to 2 months depending on the richness of the juice. The wine is aged in french oak and acacia barrels for a period of 10 months with only 15% of new oak.

With the use of large barrels increasing the ratio of juice to wood and a small percentage of new oak, the wine is not marked by the oak. This enables the grape to express its full aromatic potentials. The wine is gold in colour with an expressive aromatic range of exotic confit fruits, it is rich, concentrated and well-balanced by its natural freshness. The complex sweet exotic fruit flavours just linger on the palate. The wine may be cellared over 15+ years.
