    Vinification :

    Coural was the nickname of the great-great-grandfather Theophilus (1869-1939) of Jordan and Aymeric Amiel. This wine pays homage to him, symbolized by his old plough, which the winegrowers have kept. The grapes arrive in the cellar, they are then destemmed and crushed and put into vats, without any addition of yeast or SO2. Each grape variety is fermented separately and the macerations go from 2 to 5 weeks. Extractions are gentle but significant with pumping over and/or small punching of the cap. Once the alcoholic fermentation is over and the desired structure has been acquired, devatting and pressing. The press wines are generally isolated from the free-run wines and will be used later during blending. They are aged separately in vats for 4 months before racking and blending.

  • Grape Variety : Syrah, Presses
  • Terroir :

    To express the quality of the wine and its originality, the terroir is the primary key. From the schist in primitive times to the alluvial layers of the Quaternary, the vines are planted on all the geological structures. The predominantly Mediterranean climate is mild in autumn and spring, very dry and hot in summer, although morning frosts can still appear in April, and it is sunny and mild in winter, with temperatures that can drop below 0°C. Rainfall is very low (the lowest in some cities in France), and the wind, the Tramontane is very strong, which dries out the vines and prevents the appearance of cryptogamic diseases.

  • Hecto/Hectare yield : 35
  • Soil: clay-limestone

    Tasting:

    The colour is intense on a colour close to Red Plum with beautiful carmine reflections. The disc is fine, the tears are fine and homogeneous. At the first nose, we enter into a world of undergrowth, on blackberry and cigar leaf. After airing, one arrives on floral aromas such as Violet, Peony, Elderberry flowers. Then Sichuan Pepper comes to titillate our nostrils, but also Nigella seeds reminding us of Marjoram. On the palate, the wine is ample, then in retro-olfaction, we find the Pepper of the nose and we arrive on aromas of juicy, ripe Cherries, such as Pigeon Hearts, Plum and Quetsche. We have a wine bursting with sunshine, with tannins that are present, well integrated, sensual and silky. This wine persists 5 to 6 caudalies in the mouth.

Aymeric-et-Jordan-Amiel-Languedoc-Roussillon-34290-Montblanc

    At the Amiel brothers' estate, Aymeric and Jordan manage 15 Ha of vines in Montblanc in the Languedoc. This family has been established here for over 500 years with vines in their blood, attached to their roots Aymeric and Jordan are proud to produce their own wines and thus perpetuate the family history. Aymeric did a master's degree in international trade of wines and spirits in Dijon, some trips to learn more notably in Chile, Argentina, California and South Africa. With the ambition to unite 4 jobs in one: winemaker, oenologist, salesman and company manager. After studying traditional Chinese medicine in Toulouse, Jordan, an osteopath by profession, became interested in different types of natural therapies. The energies, the earth and the plants that grow there became a source of inspiration. In 2012, after a good number of experiences, each in their own way, the siblings are reunited to strengthen a common idea. The domain was created that same year. A beautiful adventure began. The transition to organic is done directly and no wine inputs are used, they trust their terroir to provide them with what they need. They take care of this estate, they pamper it because they want to pass it on to their children and it can be seen, felt and I would even say tasted!
