Prioundo is Paul's interpretation of what Corbières should be. Sure it is a serious Grenache which comes its indulging flavours of 70% dark Chocolate, grilled plums, crushed gravel and Provencal herbs. However, he gives his wine a contemporary twist by extracting Grenache's unusual suspects such as orange peel, rosemary and pomegranate juice. As you'll progress through the bottle, the structure will become smoother, increasing complexity. Gentle and seducing. On a blind taste, I'd have been torn between Corbières and Marsannay.

Tech facts: 

Yield: 25 hl/ha. Hand harvested to small cases with selection.

Vinification: After the hydric stress of 2019, the beginning of the season was particularly wet, a real challenge, with huge mildew pressure, which did not
end until late July. Wet and warm summer followed by a very early harvest running from middle of August to the middle of September. There was a huge selection of fruit in the vineyard, discarding sometimes up to 30% of the fruit. Due to hunting restrictions due to covid 19, wild pigs ran wild and ate grapes with abandon, in a few vineyards we lost everything. With careful selection of the fruit and through paying meticulous attention to the ferments, we have managed to make small quantities of excellent wines. Destemmed with no crush, with 20% as whole bunch. 3 days maceration before spontaneous fermentation in stainless steel. 21 days on skin. Basket pressed. Ageing in stainless steel on fine lees for 9 months. No fining or filtration. Bottled 24.05.22.

Terroir: Clay and limestone on a free draining stony plateau. 1.5ha. 135-150m altitude. Villeseque-des-Corbières, Haute Corbière
