Description

A rich and powerful Côtes du Roussillon Villages red wine

The estate

Voted Best Young Sommelier of France at the age of 21, Hervé Bizeul fell in love with the fairytale landscapes of the majestic Cirque de Vingrau, at the foot of the Pyrenees Orientales, in Roussillon. Restaurateur, writer and passionate for land and vine, Hervé Bizeul founded Domaine du Clos des Fées with his wife in 1997.

Over the years, Domaine du Clos des Fées has become a major name among the finest wine labels in Roussillon. Expressing the singularity of their terroir of origin, these exceptional vintages delight with their intensity and balance while having a great ageing capacity.

The vineyard

A major name among the great Roussillon wines, Domaine du Clos des Fées oversees a 30-hectare vineyard spread across 112 plots on a real mosaic of soils run in a sustainable manner.

The wine

La Petite Sibérie from Domaine du Clos des Fées is a Côtes du Roussillon Villages wine made from a single plot of old vines planted on the southern slope of an east-west facing hill. The vines are grown on a clay-limestone soil made up of schist flows with a high iron content. The plot is crossed by an icy north-west wind more than 200 days a year.

Winemaking and ageing

After a 20-day maceration during which gentle extractions are carried out by punching down, the wine is run off into new oak barrels. The wine is aged on its lees without the use of sulphur. The wine is bottled without filtration.

Blend

Grenache (96%)
Mourvèdre (2%)
Syrah (2%)

Characteristics and tasting tips for La Petite Sibérie 2013 from Domaine du Clos des Fées

Tasting

Colour
The wine is of a dense, profound red.

Nose
The aromatic bouquet is powerful, dominated by vanilla fragrances then developing notes of black fruits, blackberry jam, blackcurrant and warm blueberry tart.

Palate
The palate delights with its full, velvety texture that reveals a framework of tight, powerful tannins. The finish is remarkably persistent.

Storage

This Roussillon wine can be laid down until 2027 to release all its aromatic nuances.

Food and wine pairing

This red wine pairs perfectly with cheeses like mature Saint-Nectaire or creamy cheeses with washed rind. It also matches with duck breast or spiced meats, but not spicy dishes.
