Chassagne-Montrachet-born Sylvain Morey continues to improve and evolve at Bastide du Claux, his outpost in the Luberon which he purchased in the early 2000s. The domaine is now certified organic (practicing since 2015), and Sylvain’s commitment to harvesting by hand, fermenting without additions, and tailoring blending and élevage to the characteristics of each harvest results in wines of striking depth and purity. The Luberon Rosé “Poudrière” blends 50% Grenache, 30% Cinsault, and 20% Syrah, with the Syrah and part of the Grenache pressed directly, and the Cinsault and the other part of the Grenache bled off. With flavors of black cherries and peach skins, it presents mouthwatering textural tension and an underlying sense of minerality, as well as an unforced vinosity that shames many of its confected Provençal cousins from more market-friendly area codes.
