Portrayed as the 'angels of love', the chubby, mocking cherubs dear to Italian ornamental architecture, comprising a red, rosé and white, all of which share the common thread of freshness, have a gourmet wine appeal.
The rosé (a blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah) is scented with strawberry and citrus fruits and expresses vibrant fruit flavours; the red (a blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah), with its intense nose of fresh juicy red berries, is able to fully reveal its fruit potential thanks to grapes harvested at peak ripeness and aged in stainless steel tanks for four months. The white (70% Vermentino and 30% Viognier) is similarly fresh and fruity.
The ideal cuvées for your aperitifs and summer meals.

It honors the constant work of our winegrowers and our co-operative that exist since 1967 and that aims to
highlight the highly qualitative potential of wines from the Languedoc accross the world”.

to become perfectly ripe.
Harvesting was carried out in the same period as the previous year with some red varieties being harvested slightly earlier. The yield for both the red and white grapes remained stable thanks to wellscheduled soil and vine preparations and applications of appropriate
plant protection products. This is set to be a great vintage, certified by both the French AOP (Protected Designation of Origin) and Vallée du Paradis IGP (Protected Geographic Indication) certifications. The white variety harvests began on 31 August with our two Chardonnay
vineyards being harvested. For this grape variety, the yield volume remained more or less the same. Other varieties were not so lucky and became victim to the hungry appetites of wild boars.
The white Chardonnays, Roussannes and Grenaches are currently coming to the end of their maturation on lees, in barrels and in vats: they feature a wealth of aromas and wonderfully fresh notes.
On Thursday 1 September, our Merlot vineyard grapes made their way to the cellar, going straight into the press to produce the base for our wonderful rosé, the Domaine Haut Gléon Gris, which is then completed with some Grenache and some Cabernet. The Château Haut Gléon rosé, produced from a splendid blend of
Syrah and red Grenache, is also continuing with its slow transformation into a beautiful wine with intense (raspberry, currant) and rich flavours.
For the red wines, the sky granted our wishes, providing a little rain and freshness the night before harvest. This allowed us to reach our goals, in terms of both the quality and quantity. Our Syrah vineyards provided concentrated, dark-coloured and very high-quality juice. The Grenaches, Cabernets-Sauvignon and Cabernets-Franc also look very promising! All of our red grapes will finish their malolactic fermentation in stainless steel vats in our cellars and are maintained every day in order to achieve aromatic (dark fruit, gentle spices) and concentrated wines.
The last of the varieties to be harvested, from our old Carignan vineyards, entered the cellars on Wednesday 27 September and joined the other varieties in the final vats of the cellar. The wines are now ready to go into their winter quarters in our barrels and casks.
