Clot de l'Oum, 

http://www.clotdeloum.com/

Roussillon is one of the most exciting wine regions in France today. Young winemakers have access to a rich heritage and old vineyards and today vinify wines with a contemporary approach.
Eric and Lèia Monné bought their vineyard in Roussillon in 1995. At first, the grapes were still sold to the local cooperative, until they started bottling wines under their own label in 2001: Clot de L'Oum, Valley of the Elms. From the beginning, the Monnés' claim was to cultivate the partly very old vineyards close to nature. They cultivate a total of 15 hectares, distributed in 33 different vineyards on the typical soils of the region: slate, gneiss and granite. The vineyards are located around Maury and Belesta, northwest of Perpignan.
Since 2007, the winery has been certified biodynamic, the yields are very low with 15-20 hectoliters per hectare but still in the local midfield. In the cellar, Monnés rely on steel tanks and Stockinger barrels, in which fermentation takes place spontaneously without stems. 10-14 days of maceration provide sufficient color density, the wines are only coarsely filtered and bottled unfined.
Thanks to biodynamic cultivation, the wines have gained enormously in finesse and freshness in recent years. Deep, dark fruit is paired with vibrant minerality and a drinking flow that one would not expect so deep in the south. The alcohol levels have also dropped as a result and are now consistently moderate. All wines are already very appealing in their youth, gaining even more depth and complexity with a few years of bottle aging. A special delicacy of the wine estate is the white Cine-Panetonne - with a ridiculously low production, Eric and Lèia Monné show how elegant, finesse-rich and demanding a white wine from Roussillon can taste.

Color:

Purple red with violet reflections and black core.

Nose:

Sour cherries, raspberries, mallow and hibiscus captivate at the first smell of the 2010 Saint Bart Vieilles Vignes from Domaine Clot de L'Oum. On top of that, an ethereal note of cedar wood, laurel and dark chocolate floats as well as a bit of wet road after a warm summer rain.

Mouth:

The cuvée of Carignan with a little Grenache and Syrah quickly wraps you around its finger with its opulent fruit. Grown on high north-facing slopes in Belesta, it flows over the lips in a sludge-juicy yet disciplined way: no plump cooked fruit, but fresh and cool, controlled by the wide-stretched acidity and the fine minerality. Long, fruity-fresh finish.
