Summer Nights

Our Summer Nights red comes from a tiny appellation in the Languedoc that is typical for its unusually fresh elegant reds which conveys to us the idea of warm summer nights where you graduate from daytime rosé quaffing to a red in the evening that is soft yet uplifting.

Soil
Grown in the protected geographical indication (PGI) Côteaux d’Ensérune, in the Hérault, in the heart of the Languedoc vineyards. The vineyards benefit from a rather exceptional micro-climate due to the influences of the sea, located 15 km to the south, and foothills of the central massif, the Caroux, 50 km to the north. These favourable weather conditions give our wines a lot of freshness. The soils are mainly clay-limestone and deep. Some plots are old river terraces in pebbled pebbles. These profiles allow our vines deep roots and facilitate the flow of the water they need to lead their grapes to perfect maturity. The tramontana wind ensures a dry climate which limits the massive attacks of mildew, thus promoting the control of the health condition of our vines in a natural way.
