True to its Provencal roots, the Domaine MasLauris will produce red, rosé and white wines, vinified on site at the Domaine under the guidance of Michel Tardieu.  Made with grapes harvested by hand, these organically certified wines hope to fully embody the typicity of the grape varieties of the Luberon appellation.

L’Inopiné White 2020 – AOP Luberon
Organic Wine

Grape varieties: Roussanne 40%, Grenache blanc 30%,
Vermentino 15%, Viognier 15%

Soil: Sandy loam and gravel

Climate: Land parcels situated at 300 meters altitude at the foot of the Luberon mountains.  In summer, the microclimate allows the Maslauris grapevines to benefit from cool nights which attenuate the heat of the day.  The presence of the Mistral wind, which is active year round, plays a key role in the irreproachable healthy state of our grapes.  These different factors bring subtlety to our matured grapes and freshness to the wine.

Grapevines:  Vines from certified organic agriculture with a low yield, harvested by hand with the strictest rigor, very early in the morning using headlamps, in order to bring the grapes in cold and thereby preserve their integrity.

Yield: 30Hl/hectare. 

Vintage: 2020, a year with an ideal climate. The winter was particularly rainy. The soil and the vines regained their water reserve, which was starting to weaken after several consecutive dry years. The beginning of spring was very promising due to the absence of frost at bud-break, alternating rainfall and sunshine allowing vines to get off to a good start. 2020, also a very special year. Year of the Covid-19 where France was locked down for two months of spring. This confinement allowed us to fully focus on our viticultural work, thus intensifying our efforts to take care of our vines. A spring also marked by extremely low levels of air pollution. The vines were therefore all more beautiful and healthier. The summer was hot but not scorching, allowing vines to express themselves without suffering. Finally, the harvest took place with good weather and very cool nights enabling us to bring in fresh grapes in an irreproachable sanitary state. 2020 is certainly one of the most beautiful vintages of the last few years.

Vinification: Cold prefermentary maceration in order to enhance aromatic extraction. Cold stabilization before fermentation. Organic certified alcoholic fermentation, of which 40% of the wine is fermented in oak barrels.

Ageing: Aged for 4 months primarily in stainless steel vats with 40% aged in oak barrels. Blending of the juices in early 2021 with bottling at the end of winter, fully respecting the lunar calendar in order to preserve the maximum aromatic potential.

Alcohol level: 13.5% Vol.

Tasting Comments: This wine possesses a magnificent green gold robe.
A crisp and elegant nose reveals aromas of white-fleshed fruit with hints of brioche and exotic fruit. On the palate, a lively attack, rounded out by its body and freshness. A well-balanced wine with a long finish. Ideal with fish, seafood, white meat, but also cheeses such as Luberon goat cheese. Also, perfect for a cocktail party with friends. Ready for consumption. Can also be kept for at least 5 years.

Yield: 45Hl/hectare

Vintage: 2019, a hot and particularly dry year. After a slightly humid early spring, there was a heat wave at the beginning of summer and no rain fell during the rest of the season.

Vinification:  Reception of the harvested grapes is made using a gravity-based structure. Alcoholic fermentation in concrete tanks. Upon reception, 1/3 of the grapes were put into the vats in full clusters, 1/3 destemmed but not pressed and 1/3 destemmed and pressed, when put into the vats. Slight sulphiting at bottling. Blending took place after 4 weeks of maceration. Wine unfiltered and not fined.

Ageing: Mainly in concrete vats and part of the Serine is aged in Burgundy casks of 5 wines.

Alcohol content: 14.5% Vol.

Tasting: An intense red garnet colored robe highlighted by purplish hints. The nose reveals aromas of well-ripened red and dark berries, such as blackcurrant, along with a hint of licorice and pepper. On the palate, the wine is balanced with touches of spice and a hint of cocoa. Very long finish. This wine is ideal to accompany red meat and game meat, but also with hard cheeses such as Cheddar and Mimolette. Would also go well with dark chocolate desserts. A great wine which can be consumed immediately, after decanting. Ageing potential: 15 years.
