Audrey Bonnet-Koenig presents the Matissat 2016 (Terrasses du Larzac)
Audrey Bonnet-Koenig (winemaker at La Pèira) presents the Matissat 2016. The most surprising point for many will be the number of bottles produced: a mere 1,300. Even with the La Pèira wine 5000 bottles (or 400 or so cases) represent the record of each vintage. As such, retaining library bottles for future tastings is a challenge – but necessary.
Presentation translation: “Matissat 2016 has a lovely red, almost black colour. On the nose, we can find beautiful notes of spices alongside ripe small black fruits. There is a hint of chocolate. On the palate, it is well-balanced, with good structure. We find the same black fruits, alongside spices. The finish has good length. However, it needs at least another five years of ageing. In terms of wine-making, as for all the other wines,the grape varieties are vinified separately. Then the wine is aged, half in new barrels and half in barrels that have been used once before the previous year. And for Matissat 2016, only 10 hectoliters [1,300 bottles] were produced.”
