Johann Michel Cornas Cuvee Mere Michel 2017 (magnum)

Johann Michel Cornas Cuvee Mere Michel is made from 100 percent Syrah.

Cuvee Mère Michel was first introduced in 2016 and is not produced every year. This wine is a tribute to Johann Michel' wife, Emmanuelle, and a nod to the French song, La Mere Michel. This wines comes from Selection Massale (replanting new vineyards with cuttings from exceptional old vines from the same property) cuttings of Serine off the 1947 Yves Cuilleron vineyard at Chavanay. The vineyards are located in the lieu-dit "Les Cotes" at an altitude of 230 meters and benefiting from a southern sun exposure.


Review:

"A new cuvée (at least for me), the 2017 Cornas Mere Michel comes from sandy, granite-laced soils and was brought up in new demi-muids. It's largely in the same mold as the traditional cuvée yet has another level of richness, depth, and texture. Blackcurrants, scorched earth, graphite, burning embers, and a kiss of bloody meat all flow to a rich, powerful Cornas that has ultra-fine tannins, beautiful mid-palate depth, and a great, great finish. It's unquestionably a candidate for the wine of the vintage in Cornas. Bravo!"

This has a wealth of ripe red and purple berries with a swathe of fresh flowers and some pastry notes. The palate is spiced up with some brash oak and delivers a powdery, fluffy finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold."

The Chateau Fontane Estate
Encircled by a meander in the Vidourle river, a four kilometre drive from Sommières, the "Château de la Clotte" was built on the ruins of a roman villa. In 1432, according to historical documents, the castle belonged to Comte Pierre de Gange, but it was in XVIII century that Jean Mouton de la Clotte redesigned the property in the style we see it today.(The name of the cuvée "Mouton" is a tribute to him).

In 1792, when it caught fire, the castle was owned by Comte de Montlaur; his family kept the property until last century. In the nineties, Maryline and Philippe Pagès fell under its spell and purchased the domaine. Since that time they have been working to restore the castle to its former magnificence. . Everything is worked by gravity. The first vintage was 2000.

 

The Chateau Fontane Vineyard 
Back in 1993, they planted
40 hectares. Over time, they realized some parcels were better than others and they made a selection keeping only 25 hectares under vines. The Domaine total acreage is 130 hectares.
It is mostly Clay and Limestone soil.
