"Haedus" Rose, Cotes de Provence AOP - pink dry wine made from grape varieties Grenache, Syra, Senso and Role (Vermentino). The soil of the vineyards consists of clay and limestone, and methods of organic farming are applied on the plots. Harvest is collected at night or early in the morning, as the coolness helps maintain the freshness of the berries. After careful sorting, the grapes are sent under the press, and then into thermo-controlled containers, where it is fermented at a temperature of 14-18 ° C. Malotactic fermentation is not used to preserve the natural acidity of the wine. The wine is aged on "thin" sediment in steel tankers and bottled in February.
In 1442 the family Ferry, who accompanied the Duke of Anjou, René Dobro, moved from Naples to Provence. The family acquired a castle that the generations of Ferry owned almost four centuries, until 1820. About 15 years ago, Michelle Pinot bought the estate of Ferry. Currently, his two children, Matthew and Alexander, help manage the household. The Chateau Ferry Lacombe is located in a place that can be called the pearl of Provence. One of the most beautiful Provencal terroirs - the valley of the Arc River - fits comfortably between the mountain of Sant-Victoire and the hills of Aurelien; Between Aix-en-Provence and Saint-Maximin.
It seems that nature itself carefully selected the conditions to create a terroir, ideally suited for rosé wines. Chateau Ferry Lacombe sprawled on 130 hectares of vineyards and Mediterranean forests of oak trees and pine trees, securely covered by Mount St. Victoire from the piercing north-west wind of Mistral. Soil plots consist mainly of clay and limestone. The climate is characterized by contrast: cold nights and warm sunny days. Wind Mistral, tamed by hills and a mountain, is nevertheless powerful enough to quickly dry the grapes after rains, protecting it from disease and rot. The north-eastern exposure of the vineyards causes a slow, uniform ripening of the berries. 8 grape varieties are cultivated on the company's plots, autochthonous and international, which makes it possible to obtain a variety of white, pink and red wines. Harvest is collected exclusively by hand.
Winemaking methods combine traditionalism and innovation. Chateau Ferry Lacombe is equipped with cellars, which were laid in the late 19th century specifically for winemaking. Part of the containers, built in the walls of the cellar, underwent renovation: a replacement for steel shells, epoxy coating. Another cell contains rows of steel thermoregulated tanks intended for fermentation and maturation of wine. The cellars have climate control systems that provide the necessary temperature and humidity level, optimal for aging and preserving wine. Two pneumatic presses with regulation of force and pressure time are able to take into account the characteristics of each grape variety.
