NYHET - Val de Combrès - La Lumière 2020 (rött/red): Enlightning Syrah
Here comes a new wine from a new wine estate in our portfolio: Lumière 2020, from Val de Combrès estate.
Created in 2013 by Valentin Létoquart, it covers 7ha of certified biodynamic vines in Oppède and Ménerbes, in the heart of Luberon southeastern Rhone Valley.
Valentin has always been a farmer and got into winemaking from the farming side. For him if everything was in harmony in the vineyard surely it wouldn’t be too hard to translate that into the bottle. He worked for five years as part of a cooperative vineyard group but became upset when the grapes he was growing organically got blended into large Rhone blends, never allowing the plots to show their uniqueness and terroir. So in 2013 he decided to break away and lease his own plots. Now with the help of his neighbour’s horse he manages his vineyard under strict biodynamic management, preferring the use of herbal teas to copper and sulphur.
His wines are in line with his bottles' labels: bright, clean and joyful.
This Lumière 2020 is a good introduction to the quality and personnality of his wines. It's a 100% Syrah, but not as you know Syrah to be. With a short 6 day maceration, this a very light red wine, fruity and floral, with this pure and energetic feeling typical of well-made natural wines. It's bright and light in colour, crisp with prominent red fruits rather than black fruits. Very pleasant as an entry wine or with a light meal it better be served not to warm, around 12 or 13°C.
