Wine information

Pointe du Jour refers to the ephemeral moment when the first rays of sun break through the morning haze and announce their positive energy. The wine of this name is a cuvée of 50 % Syrah and Carignan Noir each, whose vines are over 40 years old. The Syrah is in a vineyard with lots of limestone rubble, the Carignan in a mix of yellow and blue limestone marl with sandstone, pebbles and fossils. After hand-harvesting and largely destemming, the wine was fermented spontaneously. The maceration lasted about two weeks. The wine was regularly racked and the marc was punched down. It was aged for 15 months in used barriques and bottled unfined and unfiltered with a total of 16 mg of sulfur.

Color

rich, almost impenetrable purple

Nose

The 2019s Pointe of the hour combines two very aromatic purple grape varieties, which fertilize each other in this cuvée. Interestingly, however, this takes place less in the fragrance than on the palate. In the fragrance the Pointe of the hour more restrained than the two single-varietal wines L'Odyssée and Heureux qui comme ... With air, however, hints of sloe and elderberries, black cherries and a little cassis, some beetroot, earth and rock, undergrowth and herbs and garrigue emerge. As with all wines, there is a lovely cool note in the ripe fruit.

Palate

On the palate the Pointe du Jour into the extremely charming and inviting red wines of the Domaine. Here, in addition to all the ripe, juicy, cherry fruit, an even stronger cooler and mineral vein is revealed. The Pointe du Jour offers a perfume of cherries and blackberries, violets and mint, garrigue and herbs of Provence. At the same time, the delicate, lively acidity permeates the juicy fruit. The wine glides across the palate on a fine texture, the grain of which is reminiscent of water sandpaper. This seems very coherent in itself, it is elegant and yet full of liveliness and joie de vivre.
