Description

Domaine De L'ile - 0rganic
• 1910, François-Joseph Fournier acquired the island as a wedding gift to his young wife.  Both dedicated their lives to turning this small Mediterranean gem into a paradise: cattle breeding, vegetable growing, tree planting and vine growing are developed at that time.
• In the 80’s, Sébastien Le Ber, his Grandson, dedicated his life to giving more scope to the family estate and managed to turn it into the Porquerolles symbolic vineyard.
• 2019, after many fulfilling years as a wine producer and a sailor, Sébastien is entrusting this heritage to CHANEL, thereby opening a new chapter in the story of Domaine de l’Ile.
• Under the leadership of Nicolas Audebert, who is already managing CHANEL Bordeaux wine estates, and backed-up by the teams of Rauzan-Ségla, Canon and Berliquet, the team of Domaine de l’Ile demonstrates that excellence in fine wines comes from the revelation of a unique terroir and precise work in both the vineyards and the winery.

Grape Variety: 32% Grenache, 31% Syrah, 20% Cinsault, 12% Mourvèdre, 5% Tibouren

Terroir/Vinification

2020 was a relatively warm and humid year. Winter, and especially November, was particularly rainy and stormy, providing the soil good water resources. In this vein, Spring favoured the growth of vines. Whilst the summer was particularly hot along the coast, the estate’s vineyards were protected from the heatwave thanks to easterly winds, bringing moisture. These weather conditions, along with rigorous pruning, harmonious flowering and careful supervision of plots led to a high quality of fruit, with generous berries. This results in fine and delicate, fresh and lively wines, far from being over-concentrated or excessive. The Grenache are ex-ceptionally aromatic and pure, just as the Tibouren, which are amongst the first grapes harvested and vinified.
The coloured Syrah develop their typical spicy aroma; the Mourvèdre are sophisticated, combining subtlety and strength. Delicate at the time of harvest, the Cinsault expressed their full potential after settling. Finally, the Rolle were harvested in two stages. The harvest on 20th August brings targeted, fresh juice with a great tension. The following days lead to more dense fruits, which will bring a whole new dimension to the blending. A quite unique year full of promise.
