Clos des Cimes - La Timidité des Cimes 2020: Full blossom, perfect bliss
Located in the southern Rhône valley, perched in the wild Baronnies mountains over the plains of Provence, The "Clos des Cimes" (the "Peaks' plot") estate is headed by winemaker Elodie Aubert who inherited it from her father and grand-father.
In this dreamy location, Elodie wholeheartedly crafts wines made of different grape varieties growing amid apricots and olive trees planted by her ancestors, sheeps she takes care of, and the abundant wildlife of this remote and beautiful place.
We have had the chance to spend some time working with Elodie and her team, and and appreciate the sensitivity and care they spend in taking care of the vineyard and allowing the wines to express the personnality of this exceptional terroir.
It will come as no suprise that the Clos des Cimes wines have a distinct identity made of authenticity, structural intensity and aromatic generosity.
We are now very happy to be able to share their wines, starting with this 2020 vintage of the "Timidité des Cimes". Meaning the "peaks' shyness" (also a reference to the botanical phenomenon called "crown shyness" in English), this wine was meant to be a simple, accessible and genuine expression of its terroir. And, as is often the case, out of humility and honesty came up something great.
Made of 80% Syrah and 20% Grenache and although still very young, this wine features a remarkable maturity: intense but silky smooth tannins, ripe black fruits aromas that kept their freshness and juiciness, very long and pure aftertaste. This, we believe, is a great introduction to the know-how and identity of the Clos des Cimes. Discover it for yourself and we hope you will enjoy the same perfect bliss as we did.
